Do not miss going to the Basilica San Marco if you come to Venezia. At night when the mosaics are lit you bathe in gold. The Christmas midnight mass is very moving but be prepare for a VERY LONG line before entering.

I love the atmosphere at New Year . You can take some really good photographs. It flooded a little while we were there. But just get some wellies and wade through, Its all part of the fun. They have walkways up to avoid getting wet.

The Basilica was great although short. We were limited to the areas we were able to actually tour and I dont know if that was temporary or not. The mosaics are an amazing accomplishment and a site to see and worth the wait and money.

An amazing building of beauty and quite a feat of building engineering. The intricate carvings, statues, and details are truly stunning.

There is so much to see and digest in this basilica! Everywhere your eyes turn, there is beauty. Unfortunately, there is no audio and/or write up for the works of art.

I was in awe when we entered the Basilica of San Marco. To think this was just a private place of worship for the Doge of Venice! Important events were held here also but it was not until the early part of the 19th Century...More
