Meet your guide at the entrance to the Doge's Palace, where you can skip the line for express entrance. Don your provided audio headset to hear your guide clearly and embark on a 1-hour educational tour of one of Venice's most important buildings.
The Doge's Palace, an architectural masterpiece marrying Byzantine and Oriental styles, once greeted all ships entering the lagoon. Listen to your guide's commentary outlining the role of the building in the Duke's reign over the Republic of Serenissima. Today, this impressive building still represents the seat of Venetian political power.
Go back in time as you walk through the lavish rooms, up the gilded staircases and by important masterpieces by Veronese, Tintoretto and other artists of the time. Imagine the suffering of Venetian convicts as they crossed the Bridge of Sighs toward their imprisonment.
