Description

Venice Doge’s Palace tour is a 1 hour detailed guided tour that will show you the treasures hidden in the Doge’s Palace in Venice.

During the tour you can admire the Opera Museum, which houses the ancient capitals of the porch and portico of Doge’s Palace, which form a fascinating allegorical ‘speech’ balanced between the sacred and the profane, history and legend, astronomy and astrology; the ancient entrance of the Doge’s Palace, the Giant’s Staircase, with the two statues of Mars and Neptune sculpted by Sansovino, the Lodge Atrium, from which you can admire the picturesque views of the courtyard of the Doge’s Palace and St Mark’s Square, the famous Golden Staircase, the Institutional Chambers, outlined by a decorative program that celebrates the functions and virtues of Venice.

Finally you will visit the famous Sighs Bridge.
