      San Marco facilmente accessibile e comodamente visitabile

      Dato il w end che comprendeva il ponte del 1 maggio la piazza San Marco era gremita di gente e la coda per la Basilica di San Marco impraticabile. La visita guidata con accesso privilegiato con GetYourGuide è stata la soluzione ideale per entrare saltando la fila e potendo ascoltare comodamente seduti in chiesa le preziose ed esaurienti spiegazioni di Monica, guida molto preparata e coinvolgente. Una volta terminata la visita consiglio di visitare il museo della Basilica di San Marco , ( che contiene i cavalli originali che erano in facciata e permette di salire sul portale di ingresso della chiesa con una vista privilegiata sulla piazza) a pagamento a parte, ma che conviene visitare subito per non dover rifare la coda.
