Meet your guide in St. Mark's Square and take the time to admire the Venetian-Gothic façade of Doges Palace before setting off on your walking tour. Use your skip-the-line tickets to head straight inside and follow your guide around the magnificent interiors.
As you stroll around the grand halls, learn about the fascinating history of the palace, once the home of the Dukes of Venice, and the center of Venetian political power. Along the way, marvel at architectural highlights such as the Golden Staircase; walk across the iconic Bridge of Sighs; and peek into the little-visited prisons. Don’t miss out on the palace’s impressive art collection too, which includes masterpieces by artists such as Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese.
After an hour-long walking tour of the palace, bid your guide farewell, and continue exploring the monuments of St Mark’s Square independently.
