The Doge’s Palace in Venice represents the symbol of the Venetian civilization and its great history. A masterpiece of Gothic art, the building consists of a grand stratification of ornamental elements. The interiors reflect the extraordinary artists of the time, including Tiziano, Veronese, Tiepolo, Tintoretto, and Vittoria. Imagine having the opportunity to visit a palace decorated with frescoes by the greatest Italian Renaissance artists.

The interiors allow extraordinary paths. From the enormous rooms of political life to the precious rooms of the Doge’s Apartment, from the Armoury to the disturbing prisons crossing the Bridge of Sighs. Finally, to get to the bright loggias that offer unparalleled views of the Basin of San Marco.

The palace

The palace certainly shows strong references to Byzantine and Oriental architecture. This explains how at the time this part of the Mediterranean became a melting pot of cultures. There followed also a great deal of commercial and cultural traffic between the Serenissima and the other European states.

The exterior of the incredible palace consists of colonnades that support this majestic structure. At sunset, in fact, between these columns and the decorations of the palace create magnificent plays of light. We advise those who may be lucky enough to be present at sunset not to miss this fascinating moment.

The interiors, today partly private of the works that once decorated them, still preserve a large picture gallery. Which includes works by the most famous Venetian masters. Including Jacopo and Domenico Tintoretto, Tiziano Vecellio, Francesco Bassano, Paolo Veronese, Giambattista Zelotti, Jacopo Palma il Giovane, Andrea Vicentino and Antonio Vassilacchi.
