  • See the residential offices of the Venetian government and discover masterpieces by famous artists

Description

Visit the Palazzo Ducale, Venice's most famous building. Visiting the Palazzo Ducale is a great way to get to know the culture, history and art of Venice. For centuries, the Palazzo Ducale had three fundamental functions. Apart from being the seat of Venetian government, it also had a fundamental role as the Doge residence and the palace of justice. During your guided tour you will learn more about the intersting history of the architectural gem on Saint Mark's square. Marvel at the masterpiece of Gothic architecture and pay special attention to the Renaissance and Mannerist details. Walk through the palace's courtyard and look at the two statutes of Mars and Neptune which guard the Giant's Staircase.

Then get inside the palace and your professional guide will tell you more about the halls of power and their particular historical context. Once you entered the palace you will find magnificent rooms, majestic staircases and impressive entrances. Visit the residential offices of the Venetian government and admire the famous artworks of great artists such as Tintoretto, Titian, Veronese, and Bellini. Feel the anguish of the prisoners crossing the famous Bridge of Sighs, and enter the Venetian prisons, famous for hosting Giacomo Casanova and many other prisoners.
