The powerful Doges ruled the Venetian Empire from the Gothic fantasy palace that is Doge's Palace (Palazzo Ducale) until 1797. The site was one of the first things those arriving in Venice saw as their ships sailed through the lagoon and landed at St Mark's Square, and the doges ruled with an iron fist—justice was often meted out here. Today, the site is one of the most well-known attractions in Italy.

A private walking and gondola tour in Venice

A private walking and gondola tour in Venice

Venice is a unique city, where land merges with water; alleys and canals are part of the same, dense fabric, connecting the city side by side in an almost incomprehensible way. This is why walking and boating are the two main ways to discover the secrets of Venice: this private guided tour will allow you to enjoy both of them. After a pleasant stroll, which will touch iconic locations such as Piazza San Marco, you will board on a typical "gondola", a small rowing boat which is one of the symbols of Venice worldwide. In about half an hour, cradled by the placid waters of shady canals, you will witness the beauties of this amazing city form a completely different point of view.
