The Monumental Rooms of the National Library Marciana (Library Sansoviniana) in Venice are inserted in the integrated path of the Museums of St. Mark's Square, with a single-entry at the Museo Correr (Napoleonic Wing). You log into the palace through a noble double staircase, with a vaulted roof and domed tops. The grand hall of the library, designed to preserve the treasures of the Venetian Republic will amaze you with its beauty. On the inside you will find the valuable works of Jacopo de Barbari (magnificent bird's eye view of Venice), Titian (Wisdom), Veronese and Tintoretto.
