The universe of the Republic of Venice, "Repubblica Serenissima" - The Doge's Palace, the Bridge of Sighs and the secret Prisons

 

Part One

Visit the monuments of Venice, a city of glory and supremacy.

We are right in the heart of the city to visit the most famous locations in the history of Venice. The splendour of the thousand-year history of the Republic of Venice flows before us: its civilisation, enlightened government and supremacy over the seas and the Mediterranean nations.

Highlights

  • Departure from St Mark's Square, brief description of the history of the main monuments: St Mark's Basilica, Doge's Palace, Bell Tower, Clock Tower and Procuratie.
  • Arrival at S. Maria Formosa with a guided explanation of the "Campo", one of the most famous locations in Venice.
  • Continue to Campo San Giovanni e San Paolo - the "Pantheon" of Venice with an account of the great Scuole di Carità (charitable institutions) and the dwelling places of the Captains of fortune.
  • Arrival at the home of Marco Polo and the Malibran Theatre - with an account of stories of ancient and recent history which overlap in this marvellous corner of Venice.
  • Return to St Mark's through the Mercerie, the vital road between Rialto and St Mark's and the city's main shopping district.

 

PART TWO

Cultural visit to the Doge's Palace and access to the ancient Prisons via the Bridge of Sighs.

You will enter the Porta del Frumento (Corn Door) on a tour that will take you inside the Doge's Palace, a masterpiece of Gothic art in Venice. The Palace was the symbol, and the centre, of the political and administrative life of the "Repubblica Serenissima" and its power over the seas and the many people of the Mediterranean. Sumptuous governmental rooms, private rooms for the Doge's pleasure, impressive rooms for public justice, rooms for causing fear and imprisoning enemies of the city. The Doge's Palace symbolises all of this, as over the years it has represented the power and prestige of a great nation that became the "Queen of the Sea".

 

Highlights

  • Enter the Doge's Palace and its internal atrium overlooked by four monumental facades. From this courtyard and its impressive theatrical scenery, you will climb to the first floor via the grandiose Scala dei Giganti (Giant's staircase) designed by Jacopo Sansovino.
  • A visit around the rooms of Doge's Palace and the Sala del Maggior Consiglio (Grand Council Hall).
  • From the Doge's Palace, via the Bridge of Sighs, you will visit the adjoining Palace of Prisons.
