You will then head to Saint Mark's Square and get direct access to the Doge's Palace, the ancient seat of Venetian political power!

Once inside the Doge's Palace your guide will show you the splendid halls decorated in the Baroque style. After going up the Golden Staircase, orned with stucco and frescos, you will access the council rooms on the upper floors.

Here, you'll be able to witness the extravagance and magnificence of the justice chambers. Works of art such as the Triumph of Venice by Veronese, or Paradise by Tintoretto line the walls and ceilings of the huge halls.

Throughout your visit the guide will tell you about the finer points of the architecture in the Doge's Palace.

At the end of your tour your guide will accompany you back to Saint Mark's Square. Visitors may also opt to take a tour of an artisan glass blowing show near Saint Mark's for free after the main tour has finished.

  • Nous avons prĂ©fĂ©rĂ© la dĂ©couverte de Venise + palais des doges le matin avec Barbara. Cette visite le soir avec Fransca se veut plus originale avec un aspect de VENISE moins touristique et un peu moins intĂ©ressante a notre gout (visite du quartier DORSODURO). Il faut noter que le temps n'Ă©tait pas au rendez-vous avec l'annulation de la ballade en Gondole.
