Tour Description

Cultural visit to the interiors of the Doge’s Palace and access to the Prisons through the Bridge of Sighs. We enter the Doge’s Palace, the highest achievement of Gothic architecture in Venice, through the Porta del Frumento (Corn Door) on the waterfront. The monumental complex was the symbol and center of the political and administrative life of the Serenissima.
Once the Doge’s residence, the seat of government and court of justice and prisons, the Palace was for centuries the symbol of the wealth and power of the Venetian Republic.


  • Enter the Doge’s Palace and the inner courtyard surrounded by the four monumental facades. Ascend to the first floor through the spectacular Giant’s Staircase flanked by the huge marble statues of Mars and Neptune by Jacopo Sansovino
  • See the impressive halls and the magnificent Sala del Maggior Consiglio, the hall where the Major Council met
  • Through the adjoining Bridge of Sighs cross into the bleak cells of the Prison Building
