Tourcaster - Italy - Venice - St. Mark's Basilica Audio TourJoin Now to Follow

St. Mark’s Basilica has majestically dominated Venice’s Piazza San Marco for over 900 years. It is unique for the wealth of its history and for the magnificence of its facade and interior. It was designed by an unknown Byzantine architect, who supposedly modeled it after the Apostoleion in Constantinople, giving it an opulent style with mosque-like onion shaped domes that clearly reflect the influence of the Orient. Some 8,000 square meters of mediaeval mosaics, made from gold, semi precious stones and Venetian glass, covers the walls, and cupolas. Countless numbers of pilgrims and tourists alike have been awestruck by the golden magnificence of this, the largest and most lavishly decorated 11th century church.

Tourcaster - Italy - Venice - Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute Audio TourJoin Now to Follow

Great Discoveries audio tour provides today’s tourist with the best way to visit Santa Maria della Salute, a soaring baroque structure unlike any other. She sits at the entrance to Venice, at the terminus of the Grand Canal, like some great lady on the threshold of her salon. In 1630, a plague had struck Venice taking over a quarter of its citizens to early graves. In the midst of this horror, the Venetian Senate made a pact with God, “Stop the plague and we will build a church to honor the Virgin.” The plague came to a sudden end, and the Senate set about honoring its promise by awarding a construction contract to an unknown 26-year-old architect, Baldassare Longhena. Longhena’s stunning interior contains many glorious works of art, including two of Titian's greatest paintings, "the Pentecost” and “St. Mark Enthroned with Other Saints.” The Sacristy houses an additional wealth of Titian paintings as well as the work of other artists, including one of Tintoretto’s most famous paintings, the “Wedding at Cana.” This carefully researched tour guides you through the basilica pointing out and describing the most significant artworks and other historic treasures.

Great Discoveries audio tour of Ca Rezzonico provides today’s tourist with the most entertaining and informative way to visit this majestic 17th century palace.

To have a palace on the Grand Canal was in itself prestigious, but to have such a splendid and unusually large one constructed by Giorgio Massari and decorated by Giambattista Tiepolo was certainly distinctive. Today it is one of the finest museums in Venice, housing a wonderful collection of 18th century Venetian art. Because objects designed for great palaces are displayed in a palace setting, the contents and the building harmonize in a way impossible to duplicate in a purposely-built museum.
