Description

Discover two of Venice's must-see monuments: The Doge's Palace and St Mark's Basilica!

Get fast-track entry for the Doge's Palace to discover the history and the secrets of the building, as well as the politics administered from within its walls during the Middle Ages.

Your guide will tell you all about the intrigues and the secret lives of the different social classes that found themselves inside the Palace. You will also be shown the vast corridors known as the "Alleys of Power". The tour continues on the outside of the palace's immense walls, where you'll cross the notorious "Bridge of Sighs" to reach the sinister prison and torture chamber.

When you exit the palace, your guided tour will continue at St Mark's Basilica. Admire its magnificent sculptures and mosaics as you make your way to the main altar. Behind the altar, you will see the Pala d’Oro, a splendid gold panel from the 14th-century.

Discover two of the greatest attractions inthe City of Love!
