Description

Experience Venice aboard its most traditional and authentic mode of transport on a 30-minute tour by gondola. Cruise along the majestic Grand Canal and venture down the smaller canals. The Doge’s Palace represented for centuries the seat of Venetian political power. In its splendid rooms, plastered and immersed in hundreds of masterpiece paintings, the Duke and his Council controlled the fate of a thousand year republic. The halls of power, plunging visitors in a particular historical context: the European Middle Ages and the immediately following centuries. Be surprised of the rich details of the gold staircase, of the realism of the scenes depicted by many artists who have decorated this building, relive the anguish of the prisoners crossing the famous Bridge of Sighs and entering the Venetian prisons, famous for hosting Giacomo Casanova.
