Doge’s Palace and St. Mark’s Basilica Terrace Access Tour

Want to visit Venice’s most iconic landmark without the crowds?

Then this 2 to 3 hours Doge’s Palace and St. Mark’s Basilica terrace access tour will be a great match for you.

Take the elevator up to the first floor of St. Mark’s Basilica; you’ll have an amazing view of the lagoon and the bronze horse statues in the square below.

If St. Mark’s Basilica isn’t open, you can check out the Church of San Zaccaria or the Correr Museum instead.

Enter the Doge’s Palace after admiring the breathtaking views.

Your guide will provide interesting tidbits about the palace’s history as you explore its majestic halls and admire its beautiful artwork.

Also, visit the Bridge of Sighs and learn about its interesting story.

The Bridge of Sighs was built in the 1700s to connect the Doge’s Palace to the prison. 

As prisoners crossed the bridge, they would sigh at the beauty of Venice for the last time.

Its name stems from the famous escape artist Casanova escaping across the bridge.

In the end, you can explore the palace and take some Instagram-worthy photos to remember the moments that have become memories.

  • Skip the line admission to Doge’s Palace
  • Visit St. Mark’s Basilica, the Bridge of Sighs, and the New Prisons.
