Meet your knowledgeable guide at St.Mark’s Square and start heading to the majestic Doge’s Palace, where the Doge and his Council controlled the fate of a 1,000-year republic. Discover the lavish Doge's Apartments, its splendid, decorated rooms and the masterpieces of famous artists, such as Titian, Veronese and Tintoretto, while going through this sumptuous palace. Admire the rich details of the Giants’ Staircase and the Golden Staircase, the Opera Museum, the Institutional Rooms and other extraordinary treasures.
Cross the famous Bridge of Sighs and experience the prisoners’ anguish before reaching the notorious Venetian prison, where the well-known Giacomo Casanova and many others were imprisoned.
Next, you’ll have the unique opportunity to visit one of the world’s most majestic and imposing cathedral. Held in a deep spiritual atmosphere and richly decorated with golden mosaics and other precious materials, the Basilica is a great artwork of immeasurable value.
While inside the cathedral, marvel at the richness and preciousness of the famous St. Mark’s Treasure. Located in two rooms inside a tower, it consists of 283 pieces, including Byzantine and Islamic art objects , brought to Venice after the plundering of Constantinople. Then, you’ll finally come across the major altar of St. Mark’s Cathedral and the Golden Pall, an exquisite example of Byzantine art with thousands of gems and precious stones, considered one of the most valuable objects in the world.
Through this tour you’ll have the chance to perceive and contemplate the grandeur of Venice at the time of its golden age.
