So popular that entrances are restricted, and not accessible with the standard ticket, this tour takes you into the mysterious heart of Venice's most visited attraction: the Doge's Palace. The ticket includes the guided Secret Itineraries Tour and access (without a guide) to the rest of the Doge's Palace.
Step inside the secret life of the Astronomical Clock on Saint Mark's Square, an ancient masterpiece of technology and engineering. True to the Renaissance spirit, beauty and functionality go hand in hand in this little-visited Venetian landmark!
See the complex network of pulleys, weights, and counterweights as they silently rise and fall at regular intervals. Climb the beautiful wrought iron spiral staircase towards the complex workings of the clock proper. Get a close view of the mechanism and the gears linking it with the south and north clock faces, overlooking St. Mark’s Square and the labyrinth of little streets of Venice's ancient center of trade, the Mercerie.
Discover a part of the Doge’s Palace that was not accessible before! Following the extensive restoration work that has brought the Doge’s evocative private rooms back to their original splendor. The Doge’s Hidden Treasures is a tour that takes you to the Doge’s private rooms in the wing of the Doge’s Palace adjacent to the Basilica at San Marco, from April 1, 2015.
