Skip the Line at St Mark's Basilica

With its golden interior, stunning mosaics, and soaring Byzantine architecture, St. Mark’s Basilica is one of the most popular Venice sights with millions visiting annually. Here are a few ways to avoid the long queues with a skip-the-line tour.

 

Combo Walking and Gondola Skip-the-Line Tours

If you want to experience the best of Venice in a single day, consider a tour that combines St. Mark’s with a gondola ride and walking tour. The basilica is usually the final stop, and you’ll maximize your time in the city by skipping the line to the church.


Skip-the-Line Combo Tours with Doge’s Palace

Many tours of St. Mark’s Basilica are combined with entrance to Doge’s Palace, as the two are set side by side. Skip the line at both attractions when you opt for a combo tour, where you’ll bypass the crowds and spend between two and three hours exploring the famous sights.


St. Mark’s Basilica After Hours

Another way to avoid the crowds is to visit after hours, when St. Mark’s Basilica is closed to the general public. Choose a guided tour with after-hours access to experience the gilded Byzantine beauty in near silence and without the usual crowds.
