Guided tour of the Doge's Palace (Palazzo Ducale)

Doge's Palace (Italian: Palazzo Ducale) is a captivating building on the Grand Canal and is one of Venice's most popular attractions. It was once the seat of the Venetian political power and the residence of the Doge of Venice - the supreme authority of the Republic of Venice. In the splendid rooms of the Palace, you can admire hundreds of works of art and this guided tour will give you the opportunity to relive the days of the supreme authority from yesteryear.

Our tour guide will lead you through the halls of power, plunging you into historical context of the European Middle Ages and the immediately following centuries. You will witness the rich details of the gold staircase and the mesmerising realism of the scenes depicted by many artists who have decorated this building. The tour also allows you to relive the anguish of the prisoners crossing the famous Bridge of Sighs and entering the Venetian prisons, famous for hosting Giacomo Casanova for his political crimes.
