Full description
Palazzo Ducale represented for centuries the seat of the Venetian political power. In his splendid rooms, plastered and immersed in hundreds of masterpieces of painting, the Duke and his Council controlled the fate of a thousand year history republic. 

The halls of power, plunging visitors in a particular historical context: the European Middle Ages and the immediate following centuries. Be surprised of the rich details of the gold staircase, of the realism of the scenes depicted by many artists who have decorated this building, relive the anguish of the prisoners crossing the famous Bridge of Sighs and entering the Venetian prisons, famous for hosting Giacomo Casanova. 

Afterwards, board a gondola for a fascinating 30-minute tour along the Grand Canal and minor canals.
