Full description
With the help of this innovative audioguide app, discover the 10 most interesting points inside the Doge’s Palace and the 12 best spots in the Basilica of St. Mark. The audioguide will escort you through the secrets and history of Piazza San Marco and the Rialto area with a detailed map and fascinating info about the most important features of these two amazing works of architecture.  

Start by entering the imposing Doge’s Palace and learn about the unbelievable masterpieces of artists like Tiepolo and Tiziano. Admire the Staircase of Giants, used by the Doge to reach the halls of power and the magnificent apartments where he lived with his family. Then cross the Bridge of Sighs and visit the dark Venetian prisons where Giacomo Casanova was held.  

Continue on your self-guided tour to St. Mark’s Basilica, the 5-dome cathedral whose interior is covered almost entirely with mosaics made of pure gold. Discover Byzantine masterpieces in all their splendor and learn historical curiosities and anecdotes about the treasures inside the Basilica, such as the Bronze Horses or Pala d’Oro (an altar full of gems and diamonds). Surrounded by such beauty, you’ll be glad you don’t have a tour group holding you back to explore at your own pace.
