Power and Religion of Venice Tour


The Doge's Palace represented for centuries the seat of the Venetian political power. In his splendid rooms, plastered and immersed in hundreds of masterpieces of painting, the Duke and his Council controlled the fate of a thousand-year history republic. The halls of power, plunging visitors in a very particular historical context: the European Middle Ages and the immediately following centuries. Be surprised of the rich details of the gold staircase, of the realism of the scenes depicted by many artists who have decorated this building, relive the anguish of the prisoners crossing the famous Bridge of Sighs, and entering the Venetian prisons, famous for hosting Giacomo Casanova. Continue the tour with St. Mark’s basilica, one of the most majestic cathedrals of the world! Enjoy the visit of this masterpiece of Byzantine art, unique of its kind in Italy. Have the pleasure to savour beautiful gold mosaics and marble inlays of the floors, sitting comfortably while our guide will show the represented biblical scenes, the history and the particularities of this ancient basilica. Admire the Pala d'Oro, exquisite example of the Byzantine art with its thousands of gems and precious stones; enjoy the view of the Treasury, a splendour of the religious art collected along the centuries.
