This Doge’s Palace and St. Mark's Basilica tour is perfect for visitors who want to get a true taste of the city. In just a few hours, you'll be taken to two of Venice's most iconic sites, venturing inside St, Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace.
The tour starts at one of Doge’s Palace. Once home to the Duke of Venice and the city’s courts, it is the center of Venetian history (and as one of the world’s oldest republics, that’s quite a history). You’ll explore all the best sights of the palace open to the public, from spectacular works produced on demand by artistic masters Tintoretto and Veronese, to the evidence of the genius checks and balances that made the republic so successful.
Next, you'll admire the heart of Venice, St. Mark’s Square. One of the highlights of this tour comes at the end when skip the line access takes you straight into St. Mark’s Basilica, saving precious vacation time that would otherwise have been wasted in line. Marvel at the diversity of Venetian culture, where eastern architecture and western design have blended to create a structure with an onion dome, before following your guide through the beautiful frescoes inside the basilica.
