Description

The tour begins with a visit to the Doge’s Palace and its marvelous rooms, rich in history and decorated by incredible masterpieces made by great artists as Tiepolo and Tiziano. The Golden staircase will leave you speechless: this was the main entrance to the halls of power where the Doge decided the fate of the Republic! Cross the Bridge of Sighs and go through the dark Venetian prisons, where many important figures were imprisoned, including Giacomo Casanova.
