Description

Scroll back through the centuries for a time-traveler's eye-view of Venice's Golden Age. Join an expert tour guide and get immersed in the Gothic opulence and historical significance of Doge's Palace - the seat of power in the city for hundreds of years. Then, explore the royal palaces and sites around St. Mark's Square before seeing how Venetian glass is made.

Plunge yourself into the past at the Doge's Palace, and feel the Gothic heart of Venice come alive as an expert guide paints a vivid picture of royal excess and political intrigue.

Scale a huge golden staircase, and be spirited around lavish rooms and grand halls, adorned with masterpieces by artists such as Titian, Veronese, Tintoretto, and other Renaissance masters.

Cross the infamous Bridge of Sighs and visit the dungeon where Giacomo Casanova was imprisoned.

Finish off with a self-guided visit of the Museo Archeologico Nazionale and the Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana, where you'll discover the ancient Venetian way of life. See artifacts, artworks, and antique documents that capture the essence of Venice in the Middle Ages.

An optional glass-crafting demonstration at a nearby glass factory completes the authentic Venetian experience.
