Full description
Together with your expert guide, you will be escorted inside the Doge's Palace where you can admire artistic masterpieces created by the most famous painters and sculptors of that time. Tiepolo and Tiziano make up only a few of the many artists that decorated this palace. Be stunned in front of the golden staircases, the entrance of the rooms of the Doges and the halls of power from where you can see the “Last Judgment” by Tintoretto, one of the greatest and largest paintings in the world. Cross the Bridge of Sighs and see Venice from an exclusive point of view as the old prisoners did in the past, before venturing down to the cold and dark prisons.

With this special ticket, you can visit the Old Royal Palace in St. Mark’s Square. Here you will discover the Venice lifestyle in the past; the rooms of Sissi, Empress of Austria, and the archaeological museum.

Later, take an unforgettable gondola ride with music and Italian singers who will play popular songs for your entertainment. Jump back in time while gliding along the Venetian canals. Admire La Fenice Theater, the Peggy Guggenheim collection, and La Salute Church from a privileged point of view. Glide under small bridges and take in the breathtaking atmosphere of the Grand Canal, the perfect location for live music played by professional musicians and singers.
