Experience 2 of Venice's can't-miss monuments on this tour of the majestic Doge’s Palace and St. Mark’s Basilica. Get up-close views of the fantastic architecture of both, and access areas normally closed to the public. Skip past the notoriously long lines to make the most of your time spent exploring these incredible attractions.
Meet your guide amid the fluttering pigeons of St. Mark's Square and set off for the Doge's Palace. Travel back to the Venice of the Renaissance at this grand residence, learning about the historical significance of the Duke’s former home, admiring paintings of past glories, and gazing at the coffered ceiling over the Golden Staircase. Cross over the Bridge of Sighs and follow in the footsteps of those less-fortunate souls who called the Palace of Prisons their home.
Next, make your way toward the sky-scraping domes of grand St. Mark’s Basilica, which has held court over its namesake plaza since the 11th century. Marvel at golden mosaics and marble floors as your guide explains the meaning behind the biblical scenes depicted throughout this Gothic Byzantine cathedral.
