Saint Mark's Basilica

Saint Mark's Basilica is a unique monument, with an incomparably rich history and a truly magnificent façade and interiors, a splendid atelier for many of Italy and Europe’s great artists who worked here over the centuries. 
Its distinctive Byzantine style shines brightly in the great mosaics that illustrate the life of St. Mark, as well as scenes from the Old and New Testaments. 
Venice's greatness has always been reflected in the richness of the Basilica: it was adorned over the centuries by the Venetians who brought precious objects and works of art from distant lands, to create a monumentally compact architectural wonder.

Basilica della Salute

This 17th century church is dedicated to the Virgin Mary, and was built when Venice was delivered from the plague. It was begun by architect Baldassare Longhena who did not live to see it completed. The set of statues that decorate the façade create a beautiful effect as a whole, while the interior, with its octagonal plan, displays important paintings such as the altarpiece by Titian in the Sacristy. 

Information

Opening hours: 
Every day 9:00 am – 12:00 pm / 3:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Opening hours are reduced for the celebration of Sunday Mass, and in general are subject to change.
