The Correr Civic Museum, also known as the Museo Correr, is a large museum that displays art and artifacts from Venice's history as well as the former royals quarters. If you're also planning to visit Doge's Palace (the former government seat and leader's residence), the standard ticket includes entry to this attraction. Many recent travelers said that's how they ended up at the Correr Museum. Those who visited the museum said they were pleasantly surprised at how much they enjoyed the museum considering it wasn't on their must-see list (though they recommend you add it to yours). Others enjoyed the museum's peace and quiet and said it's a great escape from the crowds in Piazza San Marco. Reviewers were also pleased with the on-site cafe. 

St. Mark's Square Museums tickets, which include combined entry to Doge's Palace, Museo Correr, Museo Archeologico Nazionale and Monumental Rooms of the Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana, cost 20 euros (about $23.40) for adults and 13 euros (about $15.20) for kids 6 to 14. From November to March, Museo Correr is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; from April to October it's open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more information, visit the museum's website.

#1 St. Mark's Basilica (Basilica di San Marco)

This elaborate church sits on the popular piazza by the same name. The church was built in honor of St. Mark the evangelist, whose remains were stolen from their home in Alexandria, Egypt, and hidden in barrels of pork and cabbage leaves by a couple crafty Venetians, intent on bringing him to rest in Venice.  

Crafted from many different styles of architecture, today its opulence shines from nearly every corner – from the four bronze horses that guard the entrance to thousands of square feet of mosaics to the Pala d'Oro. If you look closely at the church's center gable, you can see a statue of St. Mark along with Venice's emblem: a lion with wings.
