Because Saint Mark's Basilica (Basilica di San Marco) and the Doge's Palace are both located in Saint Mark's Square (Piazza San Marco) in Venice, Italy visitors are able to get their fill of history and magnificent architecture all in one place. Saint Mark's Square also has boutiques, chic cafes, and musical entertainment.

Saint Mark's Basilica in Venice, Italy was designed in a Greek cross plan - four equal sections each topped by a dome with the larger Ascension Dome in the centre. This dome consists of a beautiful mosaic of Jesus surrounded by the twelve Apostles, the Virgin Mary and angels.

The tour of Saint Mark's Basilica in Venice, Italy takes about an hour. No photographs are allowed and the dress code does not allow shorts, bare shoulders and backpacks or large bags. In spite of these minor restrictions Saint Mark's Basilica is one of the best and oldest in Europe and an outstanding example of the Byzantine style of architecture.

There are usually lineups to get into both Saint Mark's Basilica and the Doge's Palace in Venice, Italy so if one has the time it would be less tiring to spread the tours over two days and visit other Venice landmarks in between.
