Your experience


  • Get exclusive VIP access to the secret itineraries of the Doge's Palace
  • Your expert guide reveals Venice's dark secrets and fascinating stories
  • Enjoy the direct access to the Mrkuskirche and admire the mosaics


Discover the Doge's Palace in the most complete and rewarding way: with an expert guide, entertaining anecdotes and an exploration of what 99% of the Doge's Palace visitors never get to see. These are the secret itineraries and the hidden labyrinth of secret meeting rooms, offices, torture chambers and high-security prison cells!

While exploring the secret routes, you can escape the crowds at the Doge's Palace and follow in the footsteps of the most colourful figures in Venice. Our favorite? Casanova, the legendary robber (yes, he really existed!). As you will learn, he deserves all the credit: despite all the difficulties, he managed to escape his cell here in the palace, a cell that can only be seen on the secret tours.

In addition to the most exciting stories of Venice, a visit to the secret itineraries means going through the hidden cells and room parts of the Palace, which not only most visitors do not see, but also the vast majority of Venetians did not know in the past! As you explore the secret rooms with their antique cabinets and creaking floors, you will really feel as if you have travelled back in time.

You will also discover the rest of the Doge's Palace with your expert guide, from the Doge's spacious apartments to the Great Council Hall, where the important General Assembly of the city made its decisions. Admire the beautiful and dramatic paintings by Veronese and Tintoretto and explore the magnificent halls that show the prestige of the Republic of Venice. What the Vatican is to Rome, the Doge's Palace is to Venice: for seven hundred years, this remarkable palace has been home not only to the Doge, but also to the (independent!) government, the courts and even the prisons of Venice.

At the end of your Doge's Palace Tour you will receive a comprehensive tour of St. Mark's Church. By accessing the group entrance you avoid the long normal queues. Here you will get a deep insight into the way Venice built a trading empire that once spanned the entire Mediterranean. While you contemplate the mosaics and other treasures inside, your experienced Venetian guide will explain how the city went from being a small island to one of the greatest powers of the Middle Ages
