Saint Mark's Basilica

Highly recommended
If the façade of Saint Mark's Basilica, with its Flamboyant Gothic porticos and gold decor, is striking, then the interior is even more so: here, the splendid mosaics, 12C floor with animal and geometric motifs, and gold altarpiece adorned with precious stones have drawn worshippers and visitors for centuries. This incredibly delicate and richly decorated gem is best visited between 11.30am and 12.30pm when the light is at its brightest.
