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.

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”.
