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".

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.

 

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.

 

Highlights

  • Ancient streets between St Mark's Square and the Rialto Bridge.
  • Exterior of Gran Teatro la Fenice.
  • Exterior of the Scala del Bovolo (Bolvolo Staircase) of Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo.
  • Rialto Bridge.

 

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 sync with the water's movement, down waterways where he and his passengers will never be bored.

 

Highlights

  • You can board from the Gondola jetty in groups of 6. You will pass along a stretch of the Grand Canal, admiring the famous Basilica Santa Maria della Salute.
  • Leaving the Grand Canal, you will return to St Mark's district, navigating through less impressive canals near the Gran Teatro La Fenice.
  • Return to the jetty.
