BAXÉŁEGA DE SAN MARCO
Chiesa d'Oro - Church of Gold

I. The upper levels of the interior are completely covered with bright mosaics covering an area of about 8000 m2.
II. The earliest surviving work, in the main porch, perhaps dates to as early as 1070, by a workshop that had left Constantinople in the mid-11th century.
III. The main period of decoration was the 12th century, a period of deteriorating relations between Venice and Byzantium.

Since I've decided to post some of the hotels, the next one gives us a unique view of
an island in the lagoon of Venezia that wasn't completely covered with buildings.

ISOLA DI SAN CLEMENTE
San Clemente Palace Kempinski

I. San Clemente Island lies in the Venetian Lagoon between Giudecca and the Lido.
II. The island was first settled in 1131, when Venetian merchant Pietro Gattilesso funded the construction of the church of San Clemente.
III. The property is currently managed by Kempinski Group, which reopened the hotel as San Clemente Palace Kempinski in March 2016.
IV. The hotel has 190 rooms.

BIBLIOTECA MARCIANA
Renaissance Masterpiece

I. The original building, is the masterpiece of Jacopo Sansovino and a key work in Venetian Renaissance architecture.
II. The great architect Andrea Palladio considered it "perhaps the richest and most ornate building that there has been since ancient times up until now".
III. Frederick Hartt described it as "surely one of the most satisfying structures in Italian architectural history".
