Move to the front of the entry line and take a guided tour through Doge's Palace (the Palazzo Ducale), famous for hosting the prisoner Giacomo Casanova. Let your guide take you through the thousand-year history of the republic while focusing on the European Middle Ages. Relive the anguish of the prisoners crossing the famous Bridge of Sighs along with other memorable historical events through the hundreds of painting that line the walls.
Wander the halls and feast your eyes on the details of the golden staircase before making your way to St. Mark's Basilica, one of the most majestic cathedrals in the world. Learn about byzantine art and its religious background while taking a glimpse at the gold mosaics and marble floors of this historic chapel.
Admire the view of the Treasury before taking an optional private boat ride to the glass factory on Murano Island. Skip the line and join this 2-hour tour where glass has been made for almost 700 years.
