  • These sculptures of the four Roman Emperors are on one of the corners of St. Mark's Basilica outside. If you do not search, you hardly find them, even though they are a piece of Roman history, they pass unnoticed. It is another reason for interest in St. Mark's Square and in this case of the basilica.

  • flu across atlantic to see this monument and rest of Venice
  • This monument was largely hidden by a construction/preservation barrier, and I failed to find it despite walking around all the other sides of the Basilica di San Marco. It is humbly located at the side of the Basilica next to the tourists' exit of the Palazzo Ducale (Ducal Palace), as I realised when I saw this sculpture from one of my photos. Definitely worth stopping for a short while (if you find it). These four emperors are: Diocletian, Maximian (father of Maxentius), Galerius and Constantius Chlorus (father of Constantine the Great).
