tickitaly.com - sightseeing, not queueing.

A regular visit to the Doge's Palace (the Palazzo Ducale) in Venice is extraordinary enough - this guided tour, though, goes beyond that. Aficionados will want to dig even deeper - to explore the hidden corners of the palace on this, the Itinerari Segreti del Palazzo Ducale (the secret tour of the Doge's Palace).

The building is a quite remarkable example of Gothic civic architecture. Every stone, passageway and artwork evokes the power that the Serene Republic wielded over a millennium of unparalleled imperial power.
