The sacred meets the prophane (free tour to Murano included)
Be prepared to walk under the golden mosaic of the Basilica’s domes and discover one of the most refined works of Byzantine craftmanship: the “Pala d’Oro”.
You will enjoy the view from the terrace and find the original horses which are kept inside, and their interesting story.
You will then enter our Palazzo Ducale, the former residence of the Doge (the ruler of the city), a magnificent combination of Byzantine, Gothic and Renaissance architecture. You will pass through its lavish chambers, with masterpieces by Tintoretto, Titian, Veronese and Bellini.
You will hear about the different roles played by the Doge and his counsellors, be entertained by the Venetian legends while walking towards the prison cells whilst learning about the prisoners’ life and of course, about Casanova.
If you wish to spend more time inside the Doge’s Palace independently after the tour your museum pass will allow you to do so.
Time permitting you will walk in the S. Mark’s area with the guide.
