  • Get early entry to the Doge’s Palace for a guided tour
  • Skip the line at St. Mark's Basilica and look around with your guide
  • Enjoy terrace access for remarkable views of Venice

This is the best way to explore the Doge's Palace. With a qualified guide for company, you'll visit Palazzo Ducale before the crowds, giving you a chance to explore while it's quiet.

This Gothic architectural masterpiece was built in around 1340 and was extended and modified throughout the following centuries. Being one of the main landmarks of Venice, this was the residence of the Doge of Venice, the supreme authority of the former Republic.

After experiencing the grandiosity and the opulence of the Doge’s Palace, you'll make your way to the imposing St. Mark's Basilica, the cathedral church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Venice, and one of the best examples of Italo-Byzantine architecture.

Your small group will explore the basilica, then head to the terrace to top off this marvelous experience. Witness the majestic and luxurious cathedral below. The panoramic view of Piazza San Marco, the island of San Giorgio, the Campanile and the Clock Tower is a sight to behold!
