I’ve been to Venice before and I visited the Basilica during the day with other hundreds people.
This time I decided to take this tour to be able to proper see the splendour of this unique church and I absolutely did the right thing!
It’s really unique visiting it in the evening when there is nobody, including the crypt and the famous Pala D’oro. Stunning! Our guide explained a bit of history and the facade outside and then we spent one hour inside admiring all mosaics up and down. Absolutely unmissable!

We visited St. Mark’s on a Friday evening-small group of 20 people. Beautiful cathedral and interesting talk on the history. Wonderful way to tour without the day time crowds. Very private... a must see.

Seeing the Basilica at nite is special. The mosaics stand out even more in the night lighting. And having all the lights turned off for a bit and then turned on gradually is really amazing.
Our guide, Iole was great. Very informative, friendly, fun.

I've visited the Basilica in Venice numerous times but booked this tour because it offered being able to see the Basilica without lots of other people there and access to the crypt which is not usually accessible.
Just being able to wander freely through the Basilica under the lit mosaics with just a few other people was amazing. The crypt visit was wonderful and very interesting. And our guide was very informative and helpful.
I highly recommend this tour.

A good way to see the Basilica without the crowds. Our guide was very enthusiastic, knowledeable and funny. She was a native of Venice, and her love for her city and culture was evident. We literally did have the place to ourselves, so this tour actually delivers on that promise. I am very glad we did this tour, and I highly recommend it.

A very special visit to Saint’s Mark Basilica in a small group using headphones. An outstanding privilege to what was virtually private access to this wonderful cathedral. A special moment when the lights came up to reveal the magnificence of the mosaics. Andrea Vianello, an architect with great knowledge, explained the history and the art with clarity and showed much respect to the religious significance of the Basilica. We have been to Venice on many occasions and these events are very special. Greatly to be recommended.
