Frequently asked questions about Doge's Palace Secret Itineraries Tour

How long is the Secret Itineraries Tour and what areas does it cover?

The 1 hour 15 minutes Secret Itineraries Tour ventures into hidden chambers and passageways. We have an express tour option of 50 minutes for an efficient and equally insightful exploration of all the Doge's Palace corners. You can see the chilling Pozzi prison cells, the notorious Piombi attic prisons, and the halls of power like the Council of Ten chamber. You'll even cross the famed Bridge of Sighs, inaccessible with standard tickets. The tour offers a unique glimpse into the palace's hidden depths and the Venetian Republic's intriguing history.

Do I need to book the Secret Itineraries Tour in advance?

Absolutely! Due to the limited group size and high demand, booking the Secret Itineraries Tour in advance is essential. Spaces fill up quickly, so it's best to secure your spot as soon as possible.

Is the tour suitable for children and are there any age restrictions?

The Secret Itineraries Tour is accessible to older children, above 6 years old, who have an interest in history. However, due to the nature of the tour, which includes visits to dark, narrow, and sometimes steep passages, it may not be appropriate for very young children.

Are there any physical requirements or accessibility considerations for the tour?

The tour involves navigating narrow passages and steep stairs, which may be challenging for individuals with mobility issues. Unfortunately, the Secret Itineraries Tour is not wheelchair accessible. You should be prepared for some physical exertion and wear comfortable shoes.

Can I take photographs during the Secret Itineraries Tour?

Photography policies can vary, but generally, photography may be restricted in certain areas of the Secret Itineraries Tour to preserve the historical integrity and privacy of the site. It’s best to check with the tour guide.

Are there any restrooms or facilities available during the tour?

There are restrooms available within the Doge's Palace, but it's important to note that due to the nature of the Secret Itineraries Tour venturing into hidden areas, there won't be access to restrooms during the 1.5-hour tour itself. We recommend using the facilities before the tour begins.

What is the best time of day to take the Secret Itineraries Tour to avoid crowds?

While the Secret Itineraries Tour itself has a limited group size, the Doge's Palace can get crowded throughout the day, especially during peak season. Opt for a tour offered in the morning, typically before 11:00 AM. This might give you a slight edge before the crowds build up later in the day. If you're yet to plan a Venice trip, consider taking the tour during the shoulder seasons (spring or fall) when overall tourist numbers might be lower.

Can I combine the Secret Itineraries Tour with a visit to the public areas of the Doge's Palace?

Yes! The Secret Itineraries Tour ticket actually includes access to the Doge's Palace public areas after the guided tour. This allows you to explore the magnificent halls, courtyards, and art galleries at your own pace.

Are audio guides or personal guides available for the Secret Itineraries Tour?

The Secret Itineraries Tour is led by a professional, live guide. This ensures a more personalized and engaging experience. The guide will share historical insights, answer your questions, and bring the hidden chambers to life with captivating narratives. However, audio guides are not available for the Secret Itineraries Tour.
