Basilica Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari in Venice, Italy. Museum Planet presents a comprehensive digital narrated tour of the Basilica. Built by the Franciscans, Frari honors God, the Doges and more.

You will see the Titian's 'Assumption of the Virgin'; Pietro Lombardo's Apostles; the moody Antonio Canova Monument; Jacopo Pesaro's Tomb; Federico Corner's Monument and the historically fascinating Doge Giovanni Pesaro Monument.

The Pesaro Monument features four African slaves forever caught in the torturous task of boosting this unimportant (almost a midget) Doge aloft.
Their faces are haunting. They seem to say, 'Come ponder our fate. Experience this horror.' But see for yourself this 17th Century take on the institution of slavery.

Experience it all in the comfort of your favorite chair. You can stop and start the tour; jump around in it by choosing particular photos or stop the tour to read the often extensive text - which is always on the same page as the photograph. You can enlarge all the color photos with a 'swoosh' of your finger

The tour is more comprehensive than any book yet produced. Museum Planet takes you there: 78 photographs, 25.3 minutes of audio and 7,017 words, plus biographies.
