The Doge's Palace, the Bridge of Sighs and the secret prisons - World travellers to the Rialto Bridge - The thrill of Venice on a gondola ride

 

Part One

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".

 

Part Two

Streets of life and history: the centre of the world between St Mark's Square and Rialto Bridge

The walk takes us outdoors to cross the historic heart of Venice, in an area that lies between St Mark's Square and the Rialto Bridge. Here the protagonist is the life and noise of the famous streets, mingling with the swarming day to day traffic and the memories and continuity of trade, the fondaci (storehouses) and the markets of ancient Venice.

 

Part Three

Travel by water: the Grand Canal and the canals of Venice

Navigating a gondola through the lagoon and its canals is an irreplaceable experience, where you can become acquainted with Venice from its truest perspective. The natural rocking movement of the gondola gives the gondolier the profile of a dancer, emphasising his ability to flex his body in synchronization with the water's movement, down waterways where he and his passengers will never be bored.
