The Basilica is quite somber and unless you go at certain hours it is dull and dark although magnificent. Ladies need their shoulders covered as in most Catholic Churches.

This is my favorite European church. Go during the hour when the thousands of led lights light up the incredible mosaics. No pictures allowed but the beauty will stay with you. Not to be missed.

Very large and beautiful Basilica. The church is covered in gold. I would recommend buying your tickets in advance so you can skip the really long lines to get in.
the queue is always big but if you have bags they make you go to a cloakroom round the left wher they give you a ticket to go back to front of queue. so go there first and jump the queue
A richly decorated Italo-Byzantine church whose interior is as fascinating as its exterior. It's what you visit Venice to see. Get a good tour guide and buy skip-the-line tickets and you will enjoy it immensely.
