What to expect

The Doge's Palace was founded after 812 in the monumental zone of Piazza San Marco. It is a masterpiece with a distinctive style inspired by Byzantine and Oriental architecture. The Doge's Palace and the New Prison are connected via a double passageway over one of Venice's most famous bridges: the Bridge of Sighs, so called because prisoners, crossing the bridge, used to sigh at the idea of seeing Venice for the last time.

The Royal Palace - today's Museo Correr, was once the palace of the highest dignitaries in Venice: the procurators. Today, in the Correr Museum, visitors can learn about the Venetian way of life through sculpture, paintings, libraries and discover secrets of Venice's naval power.

Use the handy guide book, provided in your chosen language, to learn the history of the palace and its masterpieces of art. Keep on discovering Venice in the Museo Correr where you will know the Venetian lifestyle in the past!
