Full description
Your experience will begin with a beautiful walking tour of the winding streets and canals of Venice in the quiet magic of the evening hours. You will experience the city in the magic hours when the city goes from the bustle of the daytime hours, to the glory and mysterious beauty of the evening. After the walk, you will continue your tour to enjoy exclusive entry to Saint Mark's Basilica, after its doors have officially closed to the general public and the crowds have gone home. The custodians will reopen the entry doors exclusively for this tour, giving you exclusive access and leaving you as the only witnesses of the Golden Church of Venice in the magic of night. With a guarantee of just 6 people per group, a professional expert guide will lead you on an incredibly intimate journey through the magic of Venice and of the Basilica as night falls. In the quiet of the night, witness its incredible splendor as the thousands of square feet of golden mosaics illuminate in an astounding light show. You can get up close to the Pala d'Oro, wonder through the mysterious underground crypt, and be swept away by the incredible magic of this historical temple of faith and power, experiencing it as it was meant to be. This is guaranteed to be a truly unique, dramatic, once-in-a-lifetime experience that you will surely never forget.
