- The Galleria of the San Marco Basilica exhibits different works of art, tapestries and documents about the history of the Basilica. The highlights of the collection are the bronze horses, copies of which are displayed on the outside terrace. The date of these is a matter of some dispute, with opinions ranging from the 3rd century B.C. to the 4th century A.D. They were stolen by Napoleon and brought to Italy where they were restored in the 1970's. Call for admission details.
