Explore two of Venice’s must-see attractions after the crowds have left with a small group and an expert guide. Not only will you get privileged access to the Doge’s Palace, but you will also have private access to St Mark’s Basilica after closing time!
Your evening begins with a guided tour of the Doge’s Palace. Visiting at last entry time, you will explore rooms such as the Armoury, the Great Council Chamber, the ghostly dungeons and the Bridge of Sighs.
Your tour will continue to St Mark’s Basilica, which will already be closed to the public for the evening. Enter and discover Venice’s most important site completely empty! As you explore the church, including the crypt, your guide will tell you about this incredible building and its beautiful artefacts, including the main altar and the famous Byzantine altarpiece, the Pala d’Oro.
