  • Hop on a small group tour of not more than 15 visitors for an exclusive moonlit journey through Venice's iconic St. Mark's Basilica
  • See stunning mosaics, the golden altarpiece, and even take an exclusive tour of the crypt!
  • Your English-speaking guide will fill you in on all kinds of secrets and trivia, as you watch the moon shimmer on the canals

St. Mark's Basilica is impressive in the daylight, but seeing it glittering in the moonlight is something else entirely. With only limited numbers of small groups allowed this is a wonderfully intimate experience. Your expert tour guide will introduce you to the many secrets of this iconic place of worship. Gawp at the stunning mosaics, admire the golden altarpiece, and even take an exclusive tour of the crypt!

After the thousands of tourists have already called it a night, your experience is just beginning!

Follow your English-speaking guide from St. Mark's Square and prepare to be thoroughly blown away by the Byzantine architecture, dating all the way back to the 9th century. You'll learn all about the power and influence of the Venetian Republic, and see the spoils for yourself in the gilt-encrusted decorations and Pala d'Oro altarpiece.

Then it's time to get spooky, as your guide takes you below ground to the crypt – normally inaccessible to the unwashed masses. Explore these sacred tombs by candlelight and see the site where St. Mark's remains supposedly lie.

It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience – even if you've already seen the Basilica, you've never seen it like this!

You get small group access to the Basilica without the crowds, which is nice. The tour is 90 min. Small audio devices are included to hear the tour guide. Privy, but worth the money.

The church is beautiful and more so at night. So glad we did this tour, especially because most of the crowds have left for the day. It was an amazing experience!

Wir haben diese Führung gebucht um die Kirche in Ruhe von Innen zu sehen, bei maximal 15 Teilnehmern. Sie haben 16 Teilnehmer verkauft und in der Kirche war Gottesdienst, also haben wir 30 Minuten vor der Kirche verbracht, die kann ich mir auch alleine von aussen ansehen. Das Innere kam dadurch zu kurz und die Führung war zu lang. Lohnt trotzdem, kann man aber besser machen.

Dit is een topper! In een klein groepje de basiliek bekijken onder leiding van een uitstekende gids (Andrea, architect). Alle tijd om alles rustig te bekijken. Ook op plekken waar he overdag niet mag komen zoals de crypte. Echt een aanrader bij uitstek!
