An amazing experience. A wonderful guide -- lots of wonderful information about a sight that has to be one of the most stunning in the world. Not inexpensive but totally worth it!

Our after hours tour of St Mark’s Basilica was excellent. It was great to be able to breathe without the crushing crowds and explore at our leisure. Martina was excellent - very entertaining and knowledgeable. A true pleasure!

This was a great tour. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and we go access to part of the Basilica that you ccan't access during on your own. It was also nice to not have to be in the crowds so we could actually hear the guide and ask questions.

Can I use a wheelchair on this tour?
Yes, but we require advance notice in order to accommodate wheelchairs on this tour. After booking, please contact us so that we can organize a private tour for you. If we cannot find a guide to lead you that day we'll offer you the same tour on the next available date or give you credit for another tour anywhere else in the world.
Does St. Mark's Basilica have a dress code?
Yes. Because it is a holy place, St. Mark's Basilica insists that both men and women wear clothing that covers their shoulders and knees. They can and will refuse entry to anyone who does not meet this standard and we can't do anything about it, so come prepared.

You can only take small bags into St. Mark's. Anything bigger than a purse - backpacks or luggage - is prohibited. There is no coat check either, so do not bring any large bags with you.
What can I bring with me on this tour?
St. Mark's Basilica has very tight rules about what you can and cannot bring inside. Anything bigger than a purse - including backpacks or luggage - is NOT allowed inside the Basilica. There is no coat check either, so do not bring any bags larger than a purse with you.
