Absolute Venice: Walking tour, St Mark’s Church and Doge’s Palace

No words can do justice to Venice. It has to be seen to be believed. So see it!

The tour starts in PIAZZA SAN MARCO, where our local guide will reveal all the secrets about the origins and the history of its main monuments: the St Mark’s Basilica, the Doge’s Palace, the Bell Tower and the Procuratie.

Then we plunge into one of the most majestic cathedrals of the world: ST MARK’S BASILICA! Here you can feast your eyes on the Byzantine mosaics and drink in the magic.

From the sacred to the profane – the tour ends in the DOGE’S PALACE, for centuries the seat of the Venetian political power. In its splendid rooms, plastered with literally hundreds of masterpieces of paintings, the Duke and his Council controlled the fate of a thousand-year history republic. A tour to see the two faces of Venice.
