St. Mark's Basilica + Doge's Palace Tour

At 10:45 am, we'll meet at St. Mark's Square to enter two of Venice's most emblematic buildings. Are you ready?

First, we'll visit the famous Doge's Palace, a building that for centuries represented the great political power of Venice. The building served for hundreds of years as the official residence of the Doges, the highest leaders of the Republic of Venice. We'll explain the power held by these leaders as we enter the palace.

We'll walk through the different rooms of this residence, see the great golden staircase and admire works by famous painters such as Titian, Tintoretto and Bellini. We'll also cross the Bridge of Sighs to visit the dungeons, which will give you goosebumps! 

The second part of the tour will be dedicated to visiting the St. Mark's Basilica Museum. We'll go back to the year 828 to talk about the origins of the Basilica as we walk through the different museum rooms.

During the tour, we'll be able to see up close the beautiful mosaics of the temple and the four Horses of St. Mark. Did you know that these bronze sculptures were brought as booty from Constantinople? We'll tell you all about them.

The tour will end at 1 pm outside the Doge's Palace. 

Changes to the itinerary

Due to operational issues, all visitors must queue to enter the basilica.

From Monday to Saturday, the entrance to the basilica will be on the ground floor of the basilica, from which you can see the Pala d'Oro from afar. We'll then go to the upper floor to visit the museum and the mosaics, which can be seen from this point. At the end of the visit, we'll exit onto the external terrace.

On Sundays and public holidays, you'll enter directly from the upper floor to visit the museum and the outside terrace, but you won't visit the ground floor as this is where mass takes place. On these days, we won't be able to see the Pala d'Oro or the mosaics.
