Its free to enter the ground level but €5 to go up to the gallery and terrace. We felt it was worth it for the pictures.

Very pretty on the outside, feels dull on the inside. Plus the queue is exceptionally long albeit quick moving. Would prefer just to sit outside and observe the architecture.

It only cost two Euros per person, but is so worth booking online prior to your visit to Venice as the queues can be lengthy and a waste of precious time. It was good to go up the stairs first and look out onto the square from it's rooftops before exploring the inside of the Basilica. A truly amazing place of worship highly decorated with precious stones and marbles. An awesome sight!

The architecture of this Church is absolutely stunning. It was undergoing restoration work while we were there so could not see all of the outside but nevertheless truly splendid.

It's very pretty, and the mosaics are lovely, but we had already visited various churches in Rome and St. Mark's wasn't overwhelming or anything. Be sure to book an entry time online so you don't have to wait in line! Our favourite part of our visit was going upstairs to the museum and out onto the roof for the view over the square
