Absolute Venice

  • See important Venetian buildings up close on the walking tour
  • Admire the Golden Basilica from the inside
  • Explore the previous residence of Venice’s Doge (ruler)

The first part of the tour offers a walk outdoors, during which the guide will introduce you to the history of the city, with anecdotes and stories that will enable you to see Venice in the context of its glorious past. 

In the second part of the tour, you will visit the Doge's Palace, a magnificent masterpiece of gothic art, where the secrets of the Doge and his Council are conserved: a building that represented the pulse of La Serenissima's political power.

In the third part of the tour, you will visit the Golden Basilica, a masterpiece of Byzantine art; what started out as the private chapel of the Doges gradually expanded to become one of the most majestic cathedrals in the world, also known as a universal symbol of Christianity. You will be fascinated by its glittering golden mosaics and the rich marble inlays that have survived the centuries and the flooding.
