Tour Details

See a side of St. Mark's Cathedral not open to other travelers! This exclusive Venice tour provides a look at the famous venue's lesser-known sights. You've never experienced St. Mark's like this before.

Your Venice tour will be led by an expert guide who will show you around the majestic structure. From the minute you walk in, you'll feel as if you were a VIP. You'll enjoy a brief overview of St. Mark's and then be taken to two typically off-limits locations: the Baptistery and Zen Chapel.

The baptistery houses the remains of Andrea Dandolo; the doge played an instrumental role in the venue's appearance. Also found here is a gorgeous baptismal font made by sculptor Jacopo Sansovino. In the Zen Chapel, you will find mosaics depicting the life of the venue's namesake figure.

The other highlight of this tour is the Pala d'Oro. The gold panel, which features thousands of gemstones, is a perfect example of Byzantine craftsmanship. Comprised of two parts, the high altar retable is considered by many the centerpiece of St. Mark's Cathedral. The entire tour lasts about one hour.

This tour provides exclusive access to the cathedral's other inaccessible attractions. If you're considering a visit to St. Mark's, this is the only way to experience it. Reserve your spot on this Venice VIP tour now.
