About
Amazing guided tour inside the Venice Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale): old residence of the Doge. The guide will escort you along the halls of power to admire the breathtaking artworks as the Golden Starticase, the parliament and many paintings of Tiepolo. You’ll cross the infamous Bridge of Sighs to go down in the Prisions. Only Casanova managed to escape from these dark and cold cells. The entrance is skip-the-line and so you’ll avoid the endless queue in front the Palace. At the end of your activity you will have the opportunity to do the free optional tour the Glass Craftsman Demonstration visiting a Glass Factory very close to Saint Mark's square (20 minutes tour). Later, enjoy the Audio guide with digital map to discover the 5 districts of Venice with their best attractions and squares, day or night, on a self-guided tour. For an exclusive experience, choose the private option: enjoy a personal guided tour.

So disappointed
I came to Venice with my husband, we both love history and even better seeing history first hand. This was not the tour for learning anything! The tour guide spoke so quickly and rarely into the mic and I believe I heard three words in the entire tour. Glad I have the ability to actually learn from the internet. Waste of money.

We are deeply sorry for your review, anyway sound strange your comment, our guide is a professional graduated guide with a long experience. We did not receive any complaints from other participants in your excursion date. We are used to make the tour with a small number of participants. Probably you was expecting more a lecture than a sightseeing tour, the guide has several participants and usually not everybody want to hear the detailed history of the monument because sometime can be boring if you are not a lot interested. Anyway it’s very common,during the tour, that participants make several questions to have deeper information on history and architecture and our guide is happy to give these better descriptions.

A must see when in Venice
Sep. 2018
In addition to wandering at your own pace through this gorgeous structure and marveling at the gold trim everywhere, you also get to walk across the famous Bridge of Sighs that led from the palace to the prison across the canal. If you are a photographer, this is a dream come true.

Don’t miss it.
The Palace will take your breath away. Wonderful structure with beautiful rooms. The ceilings are more than you can imagine. Give yourself two hours or more and buy your tickets on line to save a lot of time.

Chaotic tour
Arrived 15 minutes early and had to wait in one queue to get tickets and then join another queue to get audio headset. Received instructions in earpiece to follow guide, which turned out to be guide for a completely different tour. Could not locate right group so ended up in long queue to get in, and walking around without a guide at all. At end, bumped into right tour guide, by chance, so at least I could return redundant audio headset.
