Description

Legend, history, art and symbology swirl together in a myriad of golden mosaics in Venice’s main church: Saint Mark’s Basilica.The relics of Saint Mark the Evangelist are still enshrined inside today, after his body was plundered from Alexandria, Egypt. Fact or fiction? Only faith will give us the answer, and such was the faith of the Venetians in their patron saint that they honoured him with a church of splendour unparalleled in the rest of the world.Artistic beauty and riches evoke the enduring spirituality of the Christian faith. Each angle, each detail, each marble flagstone or column has a story to tell; in an instant they take us back to the sacred scriptures, to the life of Christ, the Virgin Mary and St. Mark. Led by the hand, we tread a celestial path of salvation.But there are other routes waiting to be discovered – or rather rediscovered – because it is us who have lost the ability nowadays to interpret the signs that even the most ordinary people of the past were able to understand. Nothing was left to chance; everything had a specific meaning set deep in context. Today it’s up to us to seek out the traces of that past which we still find all around us.Yet for all of this we need time, silence, solitude and a voice to relate the stories and reveal the hidden truths.Amid the daily chaos of millions of tourists thronging the Basilica, this is inconceivable. But in the evening, when the hurried and oblivious sightseers leave the city and the doors of the church are opened especially for you, this dream will become a reality.

Incredible Experiences in Italy for Exceptional Prices

Client Testimonials

I went to high school with the owner of the company who organized my honeymoon for myself and my now wife from Tokyo. We spent three short weeks seeing Piedmont and experiencing wine paradise there, then heading to Nice in France with our private driver and flying to Rome where honestly 4 days is NOT enough. They keep saying to spend more time and we could not agree more! You need to spend more time in many of these places. Over the course of our time in Italy we saw so much and loved it all, though Sicily and the Mondello estate they had at us, 2 minutes walk from the prettiest beach in the world was our favorite and Roberto the owners there who know Jess and her team made it so wonderful for us! We are planning on going back and even considering moving to Italy we had such a great time!
