What to expect

The Doge's Palace represented the seat of Venetian political power for centuries. In its splendid rooms, plastered and immersed with hundreds of masterpieces of painting, the Duke and his Council controlled the fate of a republic with a thousand-year history.

You will discover the palace together with a guide that will tell you everything about the European Middle Ages and the immediately following centuries. Admire the rich details of the gold staircase and the realism of the scenes depicted by many artists who have decorated this building.

You will relive the anguish of the prisoners crossing the famous Bridge of Sighs and entering the Venetian prisons, famous for hosting Giacomo Casanova.
