For centuries, the Doge's Palace, a majestic architectural masterpiece, greeted the ships coming in from the lagoon. During this tour, discover the heart of Venice and its history with skip-the-line access and personal audio system.

The Doge’s Palace is one of the most important symbols of Venice and for centuries represented the seat of Venetian political power. In its grand rooms, the Duke and his Council controlled the fate of the Serenissima surrounded by hundreds of artistic masterpieces.
