Full description
The Doge's Palace represented for centuries the seat of the Venetian political power. In its splendid rooms, plastered and immersed in hundreds of masterpieces of painting, the Duke and his council controlled the fate of a thousand–year republic. Experience it together with a guide and discover the halls of power, as you step back into the rich historical context of the European Middle Ages.
