The Golden Basilica and Venice by Gondola

Codice Tour: T35
Id Tour: 41

The Venetian sensations of a gondola ride - The treasures of the golden Basilica.

 

Part One

Travel by water: the Grand Canal and the canals of Venice

Navigating a gondola through the lagoon and its canals is an irreplaceable experience, where you can become acquainted with Venice from its truest perspective. The natural rocking movement of the gondola gives the gondolier the profile of a dancer, emphasising his ability to flex his body in sync with the water's movement, down waterways where he and his passengers will never be bored.

Highlights

  • You can board from the Gondola jetty in groups of 6. You will pass along a stretch of the Grand Canal, admiring the famous Basilica Santa Maria della Salute.
  • Leaving the Grand Canal, you will return to St Mark's district, navigating through less impressive canals near the Gran Teatro La Fenice.
  • Return to the jetty.

 

PART TWO

Visit St Mark's Basilica and discover its treasures

As an exclusive source of pride, Venice has always exhibited the affluence of St Mark's Basilica, a perfect reflection of its endeavours and its proximity to the Orient. Here Venetian art is a sumptuous amalgam of Byzantine, Romanesque and Gothic elements in celebration of God and the endeavours of the Republic of Venice. The five domes of Oriental inspiration enclose fabulous treasures: precious white marbles, blue enamels and pure gold mosaics. On the central terrace there are four bronze prancing horses in front of the façade. The iridescent mosaics of the interiors tell the stories of Saint Mark and episodes from the Old and New Testaments, while the mediaeval soul is captured in the saints appearing in the iconostases who act as guardians of the radiant Pala d’Oro and the Treasury of Saint Mark.

 

Highlights

  • Entrance to St Mark's Basilica from Porta San Pietro (St Peter's Door).
  • Visit inside the Basilica, pausing for an in-depth study of the mosaics of St Mark's.
  • Visit to the Pala d'Oro.
