Full description
The Doge’s Palace features the very best and the very worst of Venice’s history. From vast paintings by Tintoretto and Veronese to the wooden slot where accusations of treason were slipped to the fearsome Secret Police, this notorious landmark tells a compelling tale.

Follow your guide to the attic prison where Venice’s famous lover Casanova was kept for months before he miraculously managed a successful escape. Visit the spectacular Bridge of Sighs. Its name refers to the prisoners who walked over it, taking their last glance over Venice, and couldn't help but sigh.
