Hidden Doge's Treasure Tour, Venice

  • City Venice

Unveil the secrets and splendor of Venetian Republic with this exclusive tour of the Doge’s Palace.

Overview

Hidden Doge's Treasure Tour

A jewel of Gothic architecture, the Doge's Palace, offers a glance into the mysterious and opulent history of the Most Serene Venetian Republic. The itinerary offers the chance to visit exclusive rooms in the wing of the Doge's Palace next to the Basilica. It starts near the Porta della Carta then ascending to Loggiato on the first floor. From here, you can look out onto the splendid area of St. Mark's, just as the doge used to do when he appeared during public events.

This shared group tour continues with Loggia Foscara, where you will see two columns made of red marble from Verona; between these death sentences were read which were then carried out between the columns of San Marco and San Teodoro in the piazza below. Passing through the doge's private apartments, you ascend a steep staircase to the little church and the Antichiesetta where the doge used to retire to pray. Jacopo Sansovino's beautiful Renaissance sculpture of the "Virgin with Child and Angels" is also conserved here.
