Meet your guide a few steps from St Mark's Square and let yourself be guided to the imposing Doge's Palace. In its splendid rooms, plastered and decorated, the Doge and his Council controlled the fate of the Republic of Venice.

Enter the halls of power and the wonderful rooms where the Doge lived with his family; admire the incredible works of art by famous Venetian artists such as Titian and Tintoretto. Inside you will find the 'Paradise': the largest painting in the world! Be amazed by the precious details of the golden staircase, the Parliament and the inner courtyard.

A timeless journey through rooms steeped in history and secrets, where art, politics and culture intertwine in a fascinating tale that spans the centuries. Get ready to unveil the mysteries hidden behind its walls! 

Your guide will take you to the Bridge of Sighs, a passageway that leads you directly to the dank and dark prison cells of the Doge's Palace. The bridge is famous because prisoners would sigh as they crossed it, admiring sadly a free world for the last time.
