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.

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.
