Monuments of Venice Italy
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Monuments of Venice

The Saint Mark basilica is one of the city's main gems. Its interior is richly adorned with mosaics and the floor covered with geometrical designs of marble, glass and porphyry. Behind the high alter, you will find the Pala d'Oro, a Byzantine alter piece inlaid with gold, enamel and precious stones. Discover the basilica's treasures, which include objects made of pure gold and relics stolen by Christians from Constantinople during the fourth Crusade. The Doge's Palace is another unmissable site. Built in the 12th century and later refurbished in the 16th century, it was the former residence of the leaders of the Venetian Republic. Don't miss the Giant's Staircase or the allegorical sculptures that adorn the Porta della Carta. On the upper floors, discover the Grand Council Hall, with its splendid decorations of Tintoretto and Veronese paintings. Round off your tour with a trip to the prison; to get there, you will need to cross the famous Bridge of Sighs.
