Overview
St. Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace, two of Venice’s most popular attractions, are conveniently close to one other, so a combined tour of both, with skip-the-line access, just makes sense. This guided tour reveals info crucial to understanding each landmark, includes a ticket to view the Golden Pall (Pala d’Oro) in the basilica, and saves you hours of time waiting in line.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in St. Mark’s Square and walk to the Doge’s Palace, where the Doge once governed the Venetian Republic.

Bypass the lines and tour the halls filled with artwork by greats such as Titian and Tintoretto. Admire the Giants’ Staircase, Golden Staircase, Opera Museum, and Institutional Rooms. Then, cross the Bridge of Sighs and imagine the anguish of the long-ago prisoners who were led across it to Venice’s infamous prison.

Afterward, continue to St. Mark’s Basilica, one of the world’s most magnificent cathedrals. Avoid the ticket lines and absorb the spiritual atmosphere as you explore the interior, hearing how it reflects the flowering of Venice during its heyday.

Marvel at the golden mosaics and other artworks as your guide shares their history, and you view highlights including the gemstone-coated Byzantine Golden Pall (Pala d’Oro) altarpiece.

Your tour ends when your guide says goodbye at St. Mark’s.

Knowledgeable Guide

Although a little chaotic finding the right guide for the English speaking tour, the tour itself was very informative and not too rushed. Would highly recommend to others.
