Free Guided visit at the Libreria Sansoviniana

Biblioteca MarcianaThe guided visit is developed in all the Sale Monumentali of the Marciana Library on Saint Mark’s Square, and it’s goal it’s to point out the painting itinerary offered by the rich painted decoration inside the Library’s rooms, works of srtists as Tiziano Vecellio, Paolo Veronese and il Tintoretto.

The visit is also a historical one through the principal collections which are part of the Library not accessible to the public, but partially visible during some exhibitions.

The library patrimony of the Biblioteca Marciana can be consulted in the lecture rooms of the library (Piazza S.Marco n°7) for study reasons.

The Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana (National Library of St Mark’s) is a library and Renaissance building in Venice, northern Italy; it is one of the earliest surviving public manuscript depositories in the country, holding one of the greatest classical texts collections in the world. The library is named after St. Mark, the patron saint of Venice. It is not to be confused with the State Archive of the Republic of Venice, which is housed in a different part of the city.
