Saint Mark's Library Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Also known as the Old Library and Sansovino Library, it was built by Sansovino across from the Palace of the Doges, starting from 1537. It is the first example of Classical architecture in Venice. A majestic staircase whose decoration symbolized the ascent of Man towards Wisdom, leads to Sansovino Hall with a ceiling decorated with grotesques on a gold background.
