           VENICE, THE POWER OF THE PAST, THE EVERLASTING MYTH

       

             St Mark's Basilica, the Doges' Palace, the Bridge of Sighs, the Prisons

       

         St Mark’s Basilica with the spiritual, all-pervading light of its golden mosaics,
      with its sumptuously colored marble floor, will introduce the theme of Venice’s
       intense relations with Constantinople and the Eastern world. 

       

       

       

         After that your guide will spend some time at illustrating all the different buildings surrounding the two world famous Squares, the Piazza and the Piazzetta San Marco: the Library, the Bell Tower, the Clock Tower...there's a lot to say and see...!

       

         We'll then continue with a tour of the Doges' Palace, seat of Venetian power for over nine centuries, a majestic, Moorish looking architecture built between the 14th and the 15th centuries.

       

        Here you will learn about the rise, long life, and fall of „La Serenissima“, the Most Serene Venetian Republic, a powerful maritime state that based its legendary wealth on international commerce, ship building and diplomacy. 

       

       

        Amongst the 'must sees': the Golden Stair (la Scala d'Oro) by Jacopo Sansovino, the powerful  paintings by Jacopo Tintoretto and  Paolo Veronese, the enormous Council Hall (Sala del Maggior Consiglio) and the Armoury.

       

        Cross the Bridge of Sighs we'll visit the so called "New" Prisons, located on a separate  building designed at the end of the 16th century to be a more humane and funtional jail, still in use until 1922!
