Exclusive Doge's Palace Venice Private Tour - 1 Hour 45 Minutes

This exclusive tickitaly.com private tour (for a maximum of 4 people) lasts about an hour and 45 minutes (with 6 different start times before midday), and offers an in-depth insight into the political history of Venice and an understanding of the incredible longevity of La Serenissima - The Most Serene Republic of Venice. Your experienced guide will not only cover the splendid chambers covered by other tours, but also give you an informative glimpse into the secret passages and chambers of the Palace.

Tour highlights:

The tours are available seven days a week and are for a maximum of 4 people, meeting at the Porta della Carta at the Doge's Palace.

You will discover the Doge's Palace in every aspect, not only the lavish institutional rooms where the different Councils publicly administered the Republic, but also the secret parts where the darker side of Venetian justice was dealt: through secret doors and hidden passages you'll see the Chamber of Torture, hear how Casanova escaped from his cell against all odds, and learn how one of the largest rooms of Europe was built.

Your expert guide will tell you interesting stories and reveal funny anecdotes, while providing an informative introduction to the most important works of the Venetian Renaissance masters: Titian, Veronese and Tintoretto.

There are numerous steps and small inclines, often quite steep, and many of the passages are small and tight.

These are exclusive tours, and the price reflects this; there are many advantages, not least peace of mind that everything will be arranged well in advance, leaving you to simply meet up with your guide on the day and forget about any problems entering or exploring this wonderful city.

    The tour itself was very interesting. Our guide, Paola definitely knew her subject and had some very interesting tidbits of information to share. The tour was just the right length - long enough to understand the subject but not so long that we were bored. Very well organized and presented. It was nice to have a small group also.
