St Mark’s Basilica

This is the main area in Venice you need to visit and all the roads will take you there. St Marks Basilica is located in the St Marks Square. You need to cover your shoulders and legs if you want to enter as it is a Cathedral. It is such a beautiful sight with intricate details.

The Church structure is enormous: five great arches support five gigantic domes. Yet all this architecture seems just to dissolve into the golden gleam of the mosaics, the most extraordinary, engaging sight. To obtain this splendid effect, all the tiny squares lean in different directions in order to better catch and reflect the light from no matter which angle.
