Discover Venice Walking Tour and Doge Palace Entry

from £0 per person

Our Discover Venice Walking Tour and Doge’s Palace tour is perfect for visitors with only a limited time in Venice, who want to get a true taste of the city.

In just a few hours we take you to the most famous sites of the city, seeing the Rialto Bridge and venturing inside the Doge’s Palace.

We’ll also visit some quieter spots among the winding streets and piazzas of Venice, where you can get a feel for what it is to live in this floating city.

The tour will take you to the heart of famous Piazza San Marco for a complete overview of all the main monuments, including the Basilica San Marco, Palazzo Ducale, Bell Tower, Clock Tower and Procuratie.

Then it’s through the winding streets and over the tiny bridges of Venice as we delve into the heart of the city. Accompanied by an expert, English-speaking guide, you’ll visit Marco Polo’s house and hear about the Venetian son who went to sea one day and came back with stories of China. Learn about the history of culture of Venice, from its beginning as an uninhabitable marsh, to one of the world’s most popular visitor destinations.

As you walk, you’ll encounter the lively piazzas of Campo SS Giovanni e Paolo and Campo Santa Maria Formosa, where Byzantine influences, Renaissance buildings and modern structures tell the eclectic story of the city’s development.

One of the highlights of our tour comes at the end when we visit the 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. We’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.
