You'll want to fill it up, when you learn about our world famous Colosseum Underground Tour!
We will stroll through the galleries and rooms of the palace without too much effort.
Meet your guide outside the Doge's Palace and admire the building's ornate Venetian Gothic exterior.
Before entering the palace, learn about the political, religious and social center of Venice, St. Mark's Square.
After skipping the line to enter, walk through the internal courtyard. Imagine the extravagant parties that the Doge used to throw in this impressive space.
A staircase so big, it's fit for a giant. Our guide will take you up close to this photogenic staircase that adorns postcards across the city.
The Golden Staircase is a lavishly decorated staircase that connects the apartments within the palace. You'll never have seen anything quite like it.
While millions of visitors look at this bridge from a distance, you’ll see it from the inside and experience it through the eyes of prisoners who waved goodbye to their freedom and to Venice.
See the darker side of the palace as you visit the prison cells of many famous Venetians.
As your Doge’s Palace tour comes to an end, you may either stay inside and explore more inside the palace, or exit into St. Mark’s Square.

The interior of the Doge's Palace is grand to say the least. Inside you’ll find marble fireplaces, friezes and stucco adorning the walls. Some works of art stand out over the rest and our guide will lead you straight to them. These grand creations include frescoes by Titian and Veronese. Take a look at the Stairs of Gold, which connect the first floor of the palace to the third, where offices were located. However, not everything on this small group Doge's Palace tour is beautiful! Get a look at the grim prison cells where accused criminals spent their days in darkness. All these places paint a portrait of law and order in Venice, and the harsh lives of Venetian prisoners, including Giacamo Casanova.
