Amazing, I would recommend this to all, the workmanship and craft that has gone into these old buildings are unbelieveable.
When we went there were no queues and its a very beautiful Church. Take time to sit and take it all in, then just wander around. Despite many signs saying no photographs, everyone was taking photographs, hope you don't. This lovely Basilica deserves respect, whatever your beliefs. No entry charge.
A must visit in Venice. The Mosaic, the artwork, the spirituality, the legends. It is a tryuly wonderful experience and not to be missed. Travelled in late November, and this was a fantastic time to go - no queues, and a true feel of this incredible place. Museum is worth the small fee.
Wonderful gold domes, unbelievable mosaic floors and enough sanctuary lamps to light a city! There are extras to pay for, but an early visit is recommended. If you are lucky you can sit at the back of a side altar for Mass and get a real sense of what this building is about - very pre-Vatican 2 feel to it... More
St Marks Basilica is a must visit (external and the surroundings areas) if you are in Venice for the architecture and design, but over the years the numbers of tourist has grown and everything has been too commercialized.

The one thing I disliked about this building was the fact that there were certain parts of it that demanded a fee to see more. It just smacked of a money making venture. Now I know that it costs money to maintain buildings such as these, but surely it would be more honest to charge a nominal fee for admission... More
I am not one to spend a lot of time in churches, St. Marks Basilica is a must see if you go to Venice. The art work is breathtaking. Your become overwhelmed by the amount and beauty of the artwork all in one location.
In November the crowds are small. If you are OK with it being cooler it is a great time to see things. Most sites will still draw folks but you can usually move around freely, Many of the sites provide a look into the history, religion, engineering and economics of the time. Churches such as St Marks provide just that.... More
this is a beautiful church inside and outside, with statues and mosaics, lots of Gold, the best thing for me was the horses, your not allowed rucksacks and that type of bag inside but they do take them for safekeeping for collection when you leave, we were told by the tour guide that modest dress was a must, no bikini...
