Even is you plan a visit to Venice via short cruises, make sure to give a quick glance to these sights.
Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta – church in Murano, Burano & the Northern Islands
It is the lagoon’s oldest Byzantine-Romanesque church, portraying an unusual Last Judgement scene, ironically. Another richly decorated chapel is placed to the right side of this building, presenting Christ flanked by two angels, and different saints are painted with symbolic plants like wheat and grapes representing the wine and bread, poppies and lilies representing purity. Marble floors are designed in interlocking wheels swirling masterpieces, symbolising eternal life. For heavenly views over the swampy islands, there is also an opportunity to climb the Campanile to have a fascinating insight of the city.
Cappella Degli Scrovegni – Church in Padua
This church is a great Renaissance masterpiece of Italy. Before you enter the church, some helpful insights are provided by 10-minute introductory video. Giotto’s moving, modern approach helped change thinking of people as vessels for the divine but with flaws.
Basilica di San Marco – Cathedral in San Marco
It is an unforgettable sight with a profusion of bright, shimmery mosaics and domes of Venice’s cathedral. The walls classed in marbles exported from Palestine, Egypt and Syria while the dome is designed in classic layouts. The view is breathtaking when the sun’s dying rays set the golden mosaics ablaze. The basilica’s glittering ceiling mosaics are mostly made with 24-carat gold leaf fused onto the back of the glass to represent divine light and give a bright scene just before sunset. Three golden domes are also present inside the church
