Saint Mark's Square: power and splendour
Guided tour in the Doge's Palace and Saint Mark's Basilica
It is impossible to come to Venice and not visit the museums of Piazza San Marco! To get the best understanding of the places, without wasting any precious time, it will be a good idea to book a tour with an expert guide!
What the tour includes: the Ducal Palace with the institutional rooms, Bridge of Sighs and Prison, and the Basilica of Saint Mark with the Golden Alterpiece
What you should expect: the Doge's Palace was the ancient seat of government in Venice. Here visitors admire the marvellous meeting rooms with enormous paintings by great masters of the Renaissance, like Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese. In the end, through the Sigh Bridge, you will visit the 16-th-century Prison House.
In the Church, 4,000 square meters of golden mosaic surprise onlookers. The Golden Altarpiece, enriched with 2,000 precious stones, is really impressive!
