Step back to the glory days of Venice when you visit two of the most famous and important buildings in this fabulous city.
Led by an expert guide, explore the splendid Palazzo Ducale, which for centuries represented the hub of Venetian political power. See the magnificent council chambers embellished with stunning artworks and climb the sumptuous ‘Golden Staircase’.
Relive the anguish of condemned prisoners crossing the Bridge of Sighs and learn about the exploits of Casanova, once a ‘guest’ in the Doge’s grim prisons.
Marvel at the golden ceiling mosaics and marble inlays in the Basilica San Marco, and gasp when you see the gem-encrusted altar screen and the glittering contents of the Treasury. Your trip includes Skip the Line access to the Palazzo and Basilica, so you won’t have to wait in a queue.
When your tour of the historic buildings is over, you will be treated to a 2-hour excursion by boat to the famous glass-making island of Murano
