A visit to Venice headquarters: politics and religion, two faces of the same coin
Let's visit the symbols of the political and religious power of the most admired "city-state" in the old Continent.
The Queen of the Adriatic, as Venice is still addressed, was able to develop a body of laws and international relationships that allowed her to prosper. During our visit we'll see the corridors of power and will understand why Venice was called the Serenissima Republic.
The Golden Basilica was the private chapel of the Palace and a State-church.
An overview of the main tourist attractions around St Mark's Square will be followed by a visit to the precious Basilica and the seat of Venice Parliament in the past times.
