Description

Discover the magnificent buildings of Venice. Take a walk through the imposing Doge's Palace and explore the impressive Basilica of St. Mark.

The tour begins with your guide at the Doge's Palace, where you can enter the palace directly without long queues. For more than eight hundred years it has been the seat of the Doge and the government of the Republic of Venice

Admire the halls of power, in which a part of European history was written in the Middle Ages, and learn all about the intrigues and lies told behind the walls of the palace.

Afterwards you visit the basilica. The church is an excellent example of the Byzantine style. Admire the golden mosaics that have earned the basilica the nickname "Golden Basilica" and learn all about the countless art treasures from the western and eastern world.

With this tour guide, you will be lucky enough to take a seat in the central nave of the Basilica, as he is the only tour operator with a special permit

The tour also includes a visit to the famous Pala d'Oro, an altarpiece of gold and silver and an exquisite example of Byzantine art with a variety of precious stones and jewels.

This 2-hour combined tour ends outside the Basilica, on St. Mark's Square.
