Cruise Overview

Fly from London to the island city of Venice. Glide through the tranquil canals on a iconic gondola ride, explore the renaissance and gothic architecture including St Mark’s Basilica, Doge’s Palace, Rialto Bridge and Biblioteca Marciana before embarking on your Adriatic Cruise calling in at the historical walled city of Dubrovnik, the fortified town of Kotor and the Greek ports of Santorini and Katakolon before returning to Venice.

Doge’s Palace -  Skip the Line

Get ahead of the queues and get a real sense of the grand history of Venice with this guided visit to the Doge’s Palace with skip the line entrance! A visit to the Doge’s Palace, or Palazzo Ducale, is not only delightful to see but also gives a fuller appreciation of this splendid city and its rich heritage.

Venice is a place that encapsulates the finest array of architecture, a culture rich in artistic expression and, of course, romance. As the residence of the Venetian leader, the Palace is perhaps the best place to see these elements of Venetian culture combined. For centuries the palace represented the seat of the Venetian political power, where the Duke and his Council controlled the fate of a thousand-year history republic. Both inside and out the Palace is a delight to behold. From its intricate lace-like facade to the sumptuous interiors with frescos by Tintoretto and Veronese, this is a place that reveals the glorious height of Venice’s most prosperous period of history.

Drink in the rich details of the gold staircase and the hundreds of scenes masterfully created to decorate the hallowed walls of this stately building. Lastly, follow in the footsteps, at least for a little while, of the criminals of old as you cross the famous Bridge of Sighs, so named because that’s what would escape from the lips of the condemned as they caught their last glimpse of Venice before being imprisoned. Let your sighs be ones of pleasure and awe, however, as you simply delight in this tour of one of the great sights of Venice.
