The Doge’s Palace and Gondola Ride - Afternoon

Codice Tour: T25
Id Tour: 45

The Doge's Palace, the Bridge of Sighs and the secret Prisons - 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 state rooms, private rooms dedicated to the Doges, impressive rooms for public justice, rooms which incite fear and imprison the enemies of Venice: the Doge's Palace is all of this because 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

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 follow part of the Grand Canal with a view of the famous Basilica Santa Maria della Salute.
  • Leaving the Grand Canal, you will return to the St Mark's district, navigating through the less impressive canals, near the Gran Teatro La Fenice.
  • Return to the jetty.
