DOGE’S PALACE – THE PRIVATE TOUR

Doge Palace

The Doge’s Palace is arguably the most popular tourist destination in the city.

The former residence of the Doge of Venice, this Gothic palace was built to impress – and still does. Constructed between 1309 and 1324, the design and materials used were the best Venice could offer, to remind visiting popes and princes just who was in charge. The political, cultural and artistic nerve center of the ancient city empire, the Palace is an architectural marvel decorated with the works of many great Masters including Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese. The elected Doge headed a ‘serene’ system of government that lasted more than a thousand years. Facing the Venetian Lagoon and Saint Mark’s Square, the Palace has more visitors than any other museum in the city. However, a private after-hours tour will give you the opportunity to experience the Palace in a calmer atmosphere, in the knowledgeable company of your own personal guide.
