Your tour starts in the picturesque Piazza San Marco, where your guide will be waiting. Learn about the palace’s magnificent exteriors before skipping the crowds and heading to the front of the entry line.
Inside the Doge’s Palace, enjoy a guided visit through the opulent decor. Wander past Renaissance murals and gilded carvings, but don’t forget to look up: The famous fresco, Juno Bestowing her Gifts on Venice, adorns the ceiling.
Visit the Trial Chambers of the Council of Ten, where you’ll hear about the Venetian Republic’s formidable secret service. Before the tour is up, you’ll get special access to the Piombi prison, an attic jail usually closed to visitors, including the cell of Venice’s legendary lover, Casanova. Stop to take a breath—or a photo—on the 16th-century Bridge of Sighs before heading back to the square.
