The Basilica is home to hidden treasures that reveal themselves to the ones who want to know everything about it. The architecture speaks for itself as it still is wonderfully sculpted beyond imagination.

Mosaics of St. Marks Basilica

One of the more interesting secrets is that the mosaics and relics were borrowed from overseas and were not present in the Basilica. The mosaic covers almost an area of 1.5 football fields. It is crafted with excellence and inspiring to most tourists.

Jewels of the Basilica

The pala d’ Oro is a wall made of gold inside the Basilica and has hundreds of real gems like emeralds, sapphires, farmers, pearls, topaz, and many others studded inside the wall. All the tour seems to be dreamy, and visitors can get dazed by the beauty of the church. It has been well maintained to date. The gold and gems had the same shine a hundred years ago.

Resting place of St. Mark

The bones of St. Marks were also brought illegally to be placed inside the Basilica. Inside the bejeweled dome is a sight to behold, shimmering with its golden aura. Though the place has its rich history, the Doge palace is equally mesmerizing.

The Majestic Doge Palace

The Venice Doge Palace is nothing short of a historical hub floating on the Venetian islands. The place was once home to the Duke of Venice and held the court of the city. It was such a lively place with all the hustle and bustle going around. It has seen the highs and lows of the government once ruled ancient Venice.

Bridge of sighs

The guide will explain the historical background of the palace and share the details of it being converted into a prison. It held all kinds of prisoners who were involved in indecent acts. The bridge of sighs is known to be the place where prisoners sighed before being sentenced to punishment.

Museums of Doge Palace

Nowadays, the palace is home to 11 museums. The museums have displayed art and artifacts of ancient history. The guide is fluent in English, will share details regarding the artifacts displayed in the museums. The paintings and sculptures exhibited have a touch of renaissance, and modern art can not compete with this art. Artists like Tintoretto’s paintings are on display at the museums. The rooms of the palace are also adorned with the paintings of great artists and give a feel into the old culture of Venice.

Porta Della Carta

The grandeur of the palace is unmatchable. The palace has a gothic outlook built with huge blocks of stone. The porta Della Carta opens into the main courtyard, which has statues sculpted here and there. It has a square feeling but, in reality, has only three wings. It has a touch of the renaissance era because of its marble ornamentation.

The Gold Staircase

The staircase built with gold is a huge attraction in the courtyard. The huge stairs decorated with gold are one of a kind and connect the second floor to the first and third floor. Whether one believes it or not, the tour to Doge palace takes you into a world of the previous era that can not be imagined in this world of today.

In the end, it can be said that the tour to St. Marks Basilica and Doge palace is nothing short of entering the renaissance. The art and architecture reveal the secrets of that era.
