What to expect

Together with a qualified and experienced guide you'll admire the halls of power, plunging you into a very special setting: the European Middle Ages and the centuries immediately following. You’ll be surprised by the rich details of the gold staircase, the realism of the scenes depicted by many artists who have decorated this building; you'll relive the anguish of the prisoners crossing the famous Bridge of Sighs, and entering the Venetian prisons, famous for hosting Giacomo Casanova.

Thanks to this special ticket you'll also have access to the following palaces around St. Mark’s Square that you may visit by yourself: Royal Palace now Museo Correr, Museo Archeologico Nazionale and Monumental Rooms of the Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana. You'll discover the way of life for the Venetians, with paintings, libraries, old coinage, and sculptures. Get the opportunity to visit the area built by Napoleon and the rooms restored for Sissi, the Empress of Austria.

Later, the gondola ride will take you along the canals of Venice. During your pleasant ride, you'll admire Desdemona’s House and Mozart’s House passing by the worldwide famous La Fenice Theatre proceeding along the Rio Canal, “De le Ostreghe” leading into the most charming part of the Grand Canal, where you'll see the Peggy Guggenheim Collection Palace. When you reach the Salute Church and "Punta della Dogana" you'll enjoy a quick unique breathtaking view of S. Giorgio’s Island, Saint Mark’s with its Bell-tower and Doge’s Palace.
