Plunge yourself into the past at the Palazzo Ducale, and feel the Gothic heart of Venice come alive as an expert guide paints a vivid picture of royal excess and political intrigue.
Scale a huge golden staircase, and be spirited around lavish rooms and grand halls, adorned with masterpieces by artists such as Titian, Veronese, Tintoretto, and other Renaissance masters.
Cross the infamous Bridge of Sighs and visit the dungeon where Giacomo Casanova was imprisoned.
Finish off with a self-guided visit of the Museo Archeologico Nazionale and the Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana, where you’ll discover the ancient Venetian way of life. See artifacts, artworks, and antique documents that capture the essence of Venice in the Middle Ages.
An optional glass-crafting demonstration at a nearby glass factory completes the authentic Venetian experience.
Restored to their original state using state-of-the-art laser cleaning techniques, the statues of early Renaissance sculptor Antonio Rizzo are exhibited in all their glory at the Doge’s Palace.
Including some of his most famous works – like Adam, Eve, and Warrior (Mars) – the exhibition allows visitors to trace the styles and evolving influences in Rizzo’s masterpieces while admiring the marble wonders just as they might have looked back in the 15th century.
