Full description
Explore the historical seat of political power in Venice on a guided tour of the Doge's Palace. Save precious time and skip the long lines to wander the splendid rooms where hundreds of masterpieces of art are on display. Journey through more than 1,000 years of history as you learn the importance of the Venetian Republic in the Middle Ages and beyond. Be amazed by the rich details of the gold staircase, and gaze in awe at the realism of scenes depicted by the many artists who decorated the building. Relive the anguish of the prisoners who crossed the Bridge of Sighs to enter the gloomy cells that Giacomo Casanova famously escaped from.

Das Ticket ist schon über 30,- teurer als das normale Ticket. Dafür aber kein Anstehen an wirklich langen Schlangen. Guide auf deutsch war gut. Es gab keine Info im Vorfeld dass man einen Ausweis für den Einlass zwingend benötigt… ein Mann aus der Gruppe kam so nicht mit rein… alles in allem aber sehr lohnenswert
