Useful information

  • At times, St Mark’s Basilica is closed, due to high water or religious ceremonies. During high water, the tour will take place, but it might happen we have to partly adapt the tour to the weather conditions. On those occasions, skip-the-line tickets won't be accepted as all visitors have only 1 door open to get in the church.
  • Due to Lent religious observance, St Mark’s Basilica will remain closed and no visiting will be permitted on all Saturdays and Sundays from now on until Easter included. These decisions are taken by the local authorities and are therefore beyond our control. All tours including the Basilica will operate as scheduled. Your guides will provide a detailed explanation of Basilica’s history, architecture and its treasures from the outside and wherever possible will bring visual aids (either books or pictures or Ipad) to allow the customers to view the interior of the church.
  • Guaranteed skip-the-line entrance to St Mark's Basilica is available only from April to October. St Mark’s Basilica doesn't offer a fast entry service to anyone in other periods, considered the off-peak season.
  • Shoulders and knees must be covered to enter St Mark's Basilica. Large bags aren't allowed inside the Basilica.
  • This tour takes place in a historical area and is not fully accessible for wheelchair users or people with walking disabilities. However, please contact us directly for alternative routes suitable for you.
  • Please wear comfortable footwear as this tour involves a lot of walking.
