Saint Mark's Basilica

Highly recommended
If the facade of Saint Mark's Basilica is superb, the marble interior, mosaics and bronze horses will leave you in awe, as much by the luminosity of the mosaics as by its 12C animal and geometric patterns. The edifice, consecrated in 1094, features a mixture of Byzantine and Western influences and is home to a host of treasures such as alabaster columns and a gold altarpiece!
