Before starting your tour of Venice and St Mark’s, you might want to know more about the city. Venice is a city in the north east of Italy, located on a group of more than 100 small islands separated by canals and linked by world famous bridges. A zone of the city is also listed as a World Heritage Site, as well as its lagoon.
The Republic of Venice was one of the most influential maritime powers, during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, as well as being one of the areas where the Crusades and the Battle of Lepanto took stage. It also was a very important center of commerce (especially grain, silk and spice) and it was home of many artists of the 13th century up to the end of the 17th century. This is why Venice had been such a wealthy city throughout most of its history.
