What to expect

Delve into the tumultuous history of the Republic of Venice with a visit to the Doge’s Palace and discover its secrets with an immersive audio tour on your phone. Listen to fascinating stories, based on an award-winning storytelling concept, and gain great insights into the most iconic landmark of Venice. This tour, combining an immersive audio tour with a detailed map of the site, is the perfect companion to Doge’s Palace and its riveting stories.

Upon accessing the Doge’s palace from Porta del Frumento, you will encounter the enormous interior courtyard. You will gain valuable insights into the long and eventful history of the building before you continue your audio tour to experience the impressive Scala dei Giganti, the enormous stairway which once hosted the solemn ritual of the Doge’s coronation.

Once you’ve climbed up the lush and highly ornate Scala d’Oro, you will step inside the institutional chambers of the palace, which were reserved for all the important meetings of the Venetian government. You will explore stunning halls, such as the Chamber of the Great Council, the Collegio and the Chamber of the Council of the Ten and marvel at the walls and ceilings covered with the paintings of Tintoretto, Veronese, Tiziano and many more great masters of the Venetian school.

Throughout your tour, you will have the opportunity to cross the famed Bridge of Sighs and visit the New Prisons of the Doge’s Palace. Learn about the sinister reputation of the Venetian penal system and the notorious old prisons and listen to the stories of world-famous inmates, such as the legendary womanizer Giacomo Casanova!

Your tour will end in front of the Porta della Carta, the once monumental entrance-way to the building from the Piazzetta. Before leaving the Doge’s palace, you’ll admire the intricate decorations of the imposing gate and listen to the story of the Republic’s last Doge and the fall of the once invincible maritime Empire.
