The Madonna Nicopeia

In the transept, to the left, one can admire a 9th-century icon: the famous Madonna Nicopeia.

In a distant past, it was adorned with rubies and diamonds, all of which were gradually taken away over the centuries.

It is greatly cherished by the Venetians, who turn to the Virgin Mary during moments of distress.

Pause for a minute to contemplate the beauty of this painting, which has survived centuries of wars, epidemics, and dynasties and now exceeds 1,000 years old!

A medieval masterpiece renowned worldwide.

The floor of the Basilica of San Marco

Although one’s gaze may be drawn to the magnificent ceiling mosaics, I recommend directing attention to the floor: it is composed of extraordinary marble mosaics, crafted in the 12th century, featuring geometries, shapes, animals, and numerous decorative symbols of exceptional quality.

The Crypt

The crypt of the Basilica of San Marco is located beneath the presbytery and is accessible through two small doors on either side.

Inside, an incredible and mystical atmosphere pervades, stemming from the ancient medieval church.

Here, one can feel the solemnity and faith that once moved the worshipers.

In stark contrast to the luxury and grandeur of the upper floor, the crypt is modest, plain, yet filled with immensely profound intensity for the believers.

Here we are at the end of this beautiful trip from Hotel Germania in Jesolo to Venice.

It’s time for a tasty snack at some typical and charming Venetian wine bar, the famous ‘bacaro,’ followed by a stroll through the streets of Venice, so full of beauty and romance, and then finally returning to our beloved … Hotel Germania in Jesolo!
