Description

On this essential combined walking tour, visit two of the most important buildings in the city of Venice, St Mark's Basilica and the Doge's Palace. With informative commentary from your guide, enjoy convenient Skip-the-Line access to both St Mark's Basilica and the Doge's Palace.

Enjoy a quick entrance and skip the line at the Doge's Palace, marvel at the Byzantine architecture. As you explore the palace, once the centre of the Venetian Empire, pass through the chambers and gaze at paintings by Tintoretto, Titian and Veronese. Then venture through a small passage which takes you across the Bridge of Sighs and down to the prison cells, once home to Casanova, the prison's most famous escapee.

During the second part of the tour you will visit the St. Mark's Basilica, which mystically symbolises the lagoon and enshrines the saint's relics as well as the city's history with awe-inspiring mosaics. Your talented guide tells you about the church's past and how it was built.
