Fascinating history to the building. Get a tour guide to lead you around the building as so much history is involved and you beat the line waiting to get in.

Great tour with Viator. Patricia was a very knowledgeable guide. We learnt many things about Venice that we did not know previously. Excellent.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

You will just be taken with the richness and gorgeous art that surrounds you in this basilica!, Everywhere you look you find the love dedicated to building this magnificent chiesa(church), Outside and inside just astonishing and to think you're walking on the same stone floors that others walked on centuries ago!No words to express how wonderful it felt!

We only got to see the outside which was under construction.
It was breathtaking. The square is amazing to stand in and take photos.
