Merveilleuse visite !

Nous avons visité le palais, et nous avons pu aussi profiter de la visite d'une guide parlant français. Un parcours décrivant l'évasion de Casanova depuis sa cellule. Ceci était très intéressant et complet, la guide était parfaite !
Belle visite

passer dans le pont des soupirs

Le palais des doges est l un des palais les plus beaux de Venise.
Les explications sont très bonnes et le chemin de visite facile et bien tracé.
Vous passerez d'ailleurs à l'intérieur du pont des soupirs , ce qui vous donnera un autre point de vue de ce pont assez banal.
Pensez à prendre le pass Venise pour passez plus vite , ou a l'ouverture pour avoir moins de monde.
Endroit magnifique

Un grand café sur place également peuvent accueillir pour manger et boire.
Ducal Palace Venice Guided Tour

The listing for this excursion was GUIDED tour of the palace. We were there on time at the entrance. No sign of a guide. The admissions people suggested we tour the museum on our own, which we did. Take the word GUIDED out of the title.
