What to expect

Join Walks in this incredible storytelling experience, along with a Venetian expert who will deconstruct the legend of St. Mark’s Basilica and the role Venetian culture had on its building, its art, architecture and legacy. Venice is a city with a convoluted past, a city with a veining history that detours in every direction but in the company of our local expert, the past begins to align.

Your guide will answer intriguing questions such as why Venetians favored glass mosaic over the rising Renaissance tradition of fresco paintings within the Basilica, as well as further define one of the city’s greatest accomplishments - its historical blend of flavors within art, architecture, economics, and politics.
