Cultural Travels from Home: The Basilica of San Marco Part II

Coming Soon

In May 2021 Art History in Focus presented the world's first ever livestream tour of the magnificent, world-famous Basilica of San Marco in Venice. We will be returning later this year for another exclusive live tour in order to visit other areas of the basilica. We will spend time in the magnificent museum where we can admire the original Horses of St Mark, the four famous antique bronzes which once adorned the basilica's facade but now remain inside for conservation purposes (with replicas in their original position on the loggia). The museum is situated in the upper part of the church which will enable us to admire the glittering mosaics which adorn the walls, vaults and cupolas from close up, and the lights will be switched on especially for our visit.

Our interactive tour will enable you to explore the Basilica from home and ask questions throughout.

More news will be available soon

Wow, wow what a super treat this experience was, a well put together visual and historical treat I almost felt I was actually there at times, with the pace and moving around the magnificent building!”
