Access St Mark’s Basilica avoiding the long line usually present at the entrance at a very cheap price per person (free for children up to 5 years old), admire the priceless treasures enshrined in the city's most famous church and marvel at its Byzantine architecture.

The Skip the line entrance ticket will let you enter St. Mark’s Cathedral, located at the eastern end of St. Mark’s Square, which is the most famous church in Venice and one of the best known examples of Italo-Byzantine architecture. 

It is a mystical and fascinating place, built with the purpose of housing St. Mark's mortal remains after they were purloined from Alexandria of Egypt.

Until 1807 it was the private chapel of the doge and later became Venice Cathedral in place of the ancient church of San Pietro a Castello.

You will admire a vast amount of decorations, mosaics, architectonic structures and precious objects, both inside and outside the church. One of the most outstanding is the mosaic that narrates the life of St Mark and episodes from the Old and New Testament.

Visiting St Mark’s Basilica means entering an intricate world imbued with religion, art and sacred images that describes the history of Venice and the beauty of this place is astonishing.

Founded in 1750 by the Venetian Senate as Venice’s school of painting, sculpture, and architecture, the school was one of the first to study and develop art restoration. The Accademia was renamed the Accademia Reale di Belle Arti and moved to its present premises in 1807 by order of the Napoleonic occupying forces. After the suppression of religious congregations and public Venetian magistratures, a large quantity of art works was confiscated. A selection of masterpieces was sent to Paris, to be shown in the Louvre Museum.



The connection between the Accademia Galleries and Venice is deep, as many important works from churches, schools, and public magistratures are preserved here. In some cases, the shown works are the only testimony remaining from churches destroyed during the Napoleonic period. Some of the most famous paintings form part of the collections thanks to the generosity of private collectors.

Step inside the secret life of the Astronomical Clock on Saint Mark's Square, an ancient masterpiece of technology and engineering. True to the Renaissance spirit, beauty and functionality go hand in hand in this little-visited Venetian landmark!

Visitors get a close view of the mechanism and of the gears linking it with the south and north clock faces, overlooking St. Mark’s Square and the Mercerie respectively

The Moors' Clock Tower is one of the most famous architectural landmarks in Venice, standing over an arch that leads into what is the main shopping street of the city, the old Merceria. The Tower and its large Astronomical Clock, a masterpiece of technology and engineering, form an essential part of the very image of Venice. For more than five hundred years, they have measured out the flow of life and history within the city.

Visits to all four floors are now available, only upon reservation and accompanied by an expert guide. A first small flight of stone steps leads up to a little room in which the history of the Tower is explained. From here one can see the interesting network of pulleys, weights and counterweights as they silently rise and fall at regular intervals. A metal spiral staircase then takes one towards the complex workings of the clock proper; visitors get a close view of the mechanism and of the gears linking it with the south and north clock faces, overlooking St. Mark's Square and the Mercerie respectively. A further staircase then leads up to the next floor, where one can see the wooden statues of the Magi and the Angel as well as the two ornate doors from which these statues emerge in procession twice a year, on the feasts of the Epiphany and the Ascension. 

The clock-face over the Merceria comprises an outer fixed ring in marble, inscribed with the hours in Roman numerals, within which is a tondo of mosaic scattered with golden stars. Inside this is a moving disk, about 170 cm in diameter, of flaming rays in embossed copper, with traces of original gilding; face of the sun serves to indicate the hours. At the center is a copper Lion of St. Mark; once gilded, this serves to cover the end of the axle transmitting power to the clock-hand.

Originally the two doors from which the Three Kings and the Angel emerged in procession were wooden structures faced with painted and gilded metal and decorated with two gilded angels in embossed metal. Since 1858 these doors have been absent for most of the year, replaced by two metal openings which are decorated with gilded geometric motifs and make it possible to reading the panels of the hours and minutes on the two rotating barrels installed by Luigi De Lucia.

The interior of the Clock Tower comprises various small spaces linked by narrow and steep stairs; thus the building is inaccessible for those with walking difficulties and the visit is not recommended for pregnant women or for those who suffer from claustrophobia, vertigo or heart conditions and respiratory diseases. All visitors must be over 6 years old.

Visit one of the most beautiful palazzi of the Canal Grande – the rightfully named “house of gold”, or Ca d'Oro. The ancient patrician 15th century residence is home to the art collection Baron Giorgio Franchetti, which he donated to the Italian state. The palazzo is decorated in the Venetian Gothic style and has been lovingly restored and preserved though the ages, guaranteeing a fascinating architectural experience. Admire paintings of the Venetian school including the famous San Sebastiano by Andrea Mantegna, works of the Tuscan and the Flemish schools, plus wonderful bronze and Renaissance statues. There is also an interesting collection of ceramics recovered from the Venetian lagoon.

Ca' D'Oro represents the highest and most complete example of the new gothic arquitecture between the end of the 14th Century and the first half of the 15th Century. Palace was built between 1421 and 1440 by Marino Contarini, rich venetian merchant, on the area of a previous venetian-bizantine residence. To its creation took part celebrities like Marco d'Amadio, Matteo Raverti, Giovanni and Bartolomeo Buon, that was also the author of the well in the patio.

Reconstructed on the ancient storey for the previous residence, three archs were added in the innovative project. The whole facade is covered by marble of various shades, underlined by the Verona's red marble, used in the three small coluimns of the second arch. From the floor, a high wall separates the patio from the street, where one can enter through an impressive door crowned by an angel holding the coat of arms of the Contarini family.

Divided among the heirs after Conatrini's death, Ca' D'Oro passed from hand to hand, experiencing internal changes that caused a strong degrade; to the end of the 19th Centurym it was restored by Giovanni Meduna, who arbitrarily added some inexisten parts, by analogy to others. Purchased in 1894 by Baron Giorgio Franchetti, the parts added by Meduna were removed and the palace was taken as much as possible to its 15th Century look, with the addition of mosaics in the entrance floor following the marcian model, and adding red and white marble inthe walls.

Baron Franchetti, that had an important colection of art works, decided to create a museum with its collection and the arquitecture of the palace. At the beginning of the First World War, he found himself in economic difficulties, so he decided to donate the Ca D'Oro and his collection to the State, that from then supported him in the commitment, adding to the Franchetti other collections that were property of the State, and offering him officials to collaborate with to create the museum, that baron was not able to view because of his death.

In addition to the Franchetti collection, that contains paintings (mainly from Tuscany and central Italy, as well as important venetian and flemish pieces), sculptures, carpets, tapestriesand furniture, museum includes sculptures coming from churches destroyed furing the fall of the Venice Republic, from destroyed monuments, bronzes and medals from an ancient paduan collection passed to the Venice Republic, paintings, frescoes and a collection of flemish painting and terracotta models coming from the warehouse of the Accademia Galleries.
