Basilica di San Donato is a typical Byzantine structure so wonderfully quaint and out of the way, it’s a great place for your camera to have a heyday! Plus the incredible mosaic floor of the Basilica di San Donato is not to be missed.

Description:

Off the beaten path of most tourist-packed sites, located in a quiet corner of Murano, the Basilica di San Donato is a charming 12th century church. Rich in columns and arches, the intricate brick work and Byzantine mosaics on the walls and floors make the trip to the Basilica di San Donato a soothing experience for all the senses. Plus, its rumored that the relics of San Donato and the dragon slain by him are laid to rest in this tribute to San Donato from Arezzo.
