This walking tour features all the most significant monuments that stand in testimony to the glorious past of Venice. Discover the thousand-year long history of the Serenissima, and learn how this island city became a cross-roads of civilizations and the Queen of the Seas.
We enter the Doge’s Palace, the highest achievement of Gothic architecture in Venice, through the Porta del Frumento (Corn Door) on the waterfront. The monumental complex was the symbol and center of the political and administrative life of the Serenissima. At once the Doge’s residence, seat of government and court of justice and prisons, the Palace was for centuries the symbol of the wealth and power of the Venetian Republic.
