What makes this tour special

Your private tour of iconic Venice takes you into one of the cities most storied sites.  
 
There is no better way to understand the power which Venice which had over the over world than by a private, guided tour of Doge’s Palace. 
 
For over a thousand years beginning in the eighth century, Venice was ruled by doges – elected magistrates who served for life. While the process for selecting doges changed throughout the millennium, the singular law was simply that no doge could pass his title on to a member of his own family. 
 
While the original wood structure burned down, the building which stands today is still a staggering 700 years old. From its ornate wood carvings to its larger-than-life facades, the palace is more than just a historical sight – it’s an architectural masterpiece and a visual feast. Whilst touring the palace, see works by Titian, Tintoretto, and Tiepolo amongst others.
