Full description
Enjoy the ancient greatness of the Serenissima Republic by taking an enchanting panoramic tour over the history of St. Mark’s square and its main monuments. Visit St. Mark’s Basilica and marvel at the richness of its beautiful gold mosaics and marble inlays of its floors.
Sit comfortably while your guide will show you the represented biblical scenes, the history and the particularities of this ancient basilica. Admire the Pala d'Oro and enjoy the view of the Treasury.

Visit the Doge’s Palace, a fourteenth century building from where the ancient Venetian republic exerted the control over the city. In its splendid rooms, plastered and immersed in hundreds of masterpieces of painting, the Duke and his Council controlled the fate of a republic with a thousand-year long history. Be surprised of the details of the gold staircase and the realism of the scenes depicted. Pass through the famous Bridge of Sighs to reach the Prisons Palace.
