What to expect

The Doge's Palace (Palazzo Ducale) represented the seat of Venetian political power for centuries. In its splendid rooms, plastered and immersed in hundreds of masterpieces of painting, the Duke and his Council controlled the fate of a thousand-year-old republic. You’ll live it together with a guide that will show you the halls of power, plunging you in a very particular historical context: the European Middle Ages and the immediately following centuries.

You’ll be surprised by the rich details of the gold staircase and by the realism of the scenes depicted by many artists who have decorated the building. You will relive the anguish of the prisoners crossing the famous Bridge of Sighs, and entering the Venetian prisons, famous for hosting Giacomo Casanova. An unforgettable tour not to be missed! The ticket for the Palace is included in the tour price and will allow you to enter without waiting. Audio receiver devices are included in the case of groups over 10 people.
