  • Golden Basilica: The  model of Italo-Byzantine architecture and a church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Venice - the ravishing Patriarchal Cathedral Basilica of Saint Mark, nicknamed as the Chiesa d'Oro or Church of Gold is a sight to behold. Thanks to our exclusive partnership with the Curia of Venice, you can experience one of the grandest cathedrals in the world with a privileged entry, avoiding the crowds and long queues.
