    St. Mark's Basilica

    One of the most precious Christian relics, the body of St Mark, was recovered by a miracle and buried beneath the Basilica di San Marco. The church is a jewel in the Venetian crown and a symbol of the power and wealth that Venice once attained. The outside is elaborately decorated with beautiful marble and amazing mosaics, including one from the 13th century. Inside there are an endless amount of mosaics on the walls and ceiling, which help to dim the natural light to create a mysterious, exotic atmosphere. Also inside is the Pala d'Oro, which should not be missed as the (turkeyarena.com) 10th-century golden alterpiece is embellished with nearly 2000 precious gems and 255 enameled panels. The Belltower (Campanile) is Venice’s highest building and offers unparalleled views. After collapsing in 1902, the tower was rebuilt to replicate the 15th century structure. Visitors can take an elevator all 97 metres to the top. Opening hours are 9am to 7pm daily (9.30 am to 5.30pm in winter).
