    The Portrait of the Four Tetrarchs is more symbolic rather than anything else, symbolizing the unity of the 3rd or 4th century Empire at that time. Unfortunately it did not really prove prophetic. The...  more »

  • If you don't know you going to miss this place but certainly worth to look at them
  • The back story about these four figures is fascinating and there is something comforting about seeing them up against the side of St. Mark's Basilica. Every time I visit Venice I make sure that I go up and visit these warm souls.
  • When I saw these statues, I did not know the story behind them, but I could tell that they were not original. When I got home I found out their history and was amazed that something so old (about 1700 years old) was just sitting out in public where countless people have probably touched it. I'm amazed that it has not been vandalized at some point over the centuries.
  • Noone knows the real story behind this masterpiece but it's phenomenal and worth stopping by.
  • Nice statue with a nice history, that brings to mind memories from high-school studies!

Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.
