Enjoy skip-the-line access and head straight indoors to take in its many features â including gold staircases and exquisite examples ofÂ Byzantine architecture. Your guide's expert commentary â made easily to hear through use of an audio headset â will transport you back in time.
Join your guide and group of fellow travelers in front of the Doge’s Palace, an impressive Venetian Gothic-style palace and one of the city’s most important landmarks.
Bypass the crowds and make your way indoors for an educational and enlightening 1-hour tour, in which you’ll learn how this building that once greeted all ships making their way toward La Serenissima also served as the heart of the Venetian Republic's political rulings and public administration for centuries.
Enjoy your guide’s expert commentary as you walk its halls, marvel at its gold staircases, and admire works of art by Italian painters like Veronese and Tintoretto. Take note of the palace’s Byzantine and Orient architectural styles as you explore its grounds.
While crossing the 17th-century Bridge of Sighs — connecting the palace’s new prison and interrogation rooms — you’ll sense what prisoners must have felt savoring their last glimpse of freedom as they made their way toward their cells.
Your tour includes an audio headset to make it easier to hear your guide.
