This tour takes you back to the golden age of the city, passing through the surprising living rooms of the Doge's Palace, residence of the Duke of the Venetian Republic and seat of Venetian political power through the centuries.

Itinerary

During this guided visit of the Doge's Palace, we will pass through the incredible art-filled rooms from where the Doge and his advisors controlled the republic for more than 1,000 years.

Visiting the various different halls, going up the golden stairs, and enjoying the grand paintings of the era, you will have the opportunity to travel back in time and breathe the atmosphere of the Middle Ages

Having immersed yourself in this luxury, the tour goes down into the old prison, to get to know the anguish of the prisoners who, having crossed the Bridge of Sighs, found themselves in the darkness of the dungeons. The most famous prisoner to be interred in the Doge's Palace was Casanova.

After the guided tour, you can revisit the Palace at your own leisure.
