Doge's Palace & Gondola Ride Tour in Venice
Overview of the tour in Venice
Board a gondola for a tour along the Grand Canal and minor canals and visit Palazzo Ducale represented for centuries the seat of Venetian political power. In his splendid rooms, plastered and immersed in hundreds of masterpieces of painting, the Duke and his Council controlled the fate of a thousand-year history republic. You’ll live it together with a Guide that will show you the halls of power, plunging you into a very particular historical context: the European Middle Ages and the immediately following centuries.
You’ll be surprised by the rich details of the gold staircase, of 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.
