What you can expect

Combine the top 2 sights in Venice in a hassle-free tour led by an expert local guide. With pre-reserved tickets and skip-the-line access, you get straight inside the Doge's Palace for an intimate small-group tour.

First, step inside Venice's most important church, St. Mark's Basilica, and admire the east-meets-west architecture. With access to the first-floor terrace, get close to the beautiful gold mosaics, see the gold horses, and admire beautiful views from the balcony over St. Mark's Square. Led by an expert guide, hear how most of the basilica's prized possessions ended up here by less than honest means.

Your second stop is no less beautiful. Palazzo Ducale, or the Doge's Palace, was home to the doge, or duke, of Venice and his seat of government. Skip the line with pre-reserved tickets and walk straight inside to explore huge council chambers, incredible audience rooms, and a stunning ballroom with works by renowned Venetian masters such as Veronese and Tintoretto.

Hear the intriguing history of this building that housed the world's oldest republic as well as its most fascinating government and even an incarcerated Casanova. You even see the New Prisons and walk on the renowned Bridge of Sighs.
