Full description
Your tour begins with priority admission to the Doge’s Palace, the pinnacle of Venetian Gothic architecture. You’ll skip the lines and enter through the Porta del Frumento on the waterfront.

This monumental complex was the center of the political and administrative life of the Serenissima. It served as the Doge’s residence, the seat of government, the court of justice, and housed its prisons. For centuries the Palace was the symbol of the wealth and power of the Venetian Republic.

Following your guided tour you’ll have a 2-hour break before an iconic gondola ride. Glide along the Venetian canals, admiring the city from a unique vantage point.

Venice was made to be seen from the water, and the gentle, soothing movements of the gondola make for a mesmerizing experience. Relax and let the gondolier guide you through the magic of the city.
