The tour passes from the Neoclassical rooms (the new layout comprises a range of important works by Antonio Canova: marble statues, plaster casts, models, paintings and sketches) on to the various valuable collections that reflect just how cosmopolitan the city has been throughout its history. It ends with the picture gallery, one of the world’s richest and most evocative collections of Venetian painting from its beginnings right up to the early sixteenth century.

The Doge’s Palace And The Museo Correr
From Doges to Emperors
From the Doge’s Palace – the heart of the Venetian Republic – to the nineteenth-century Royal Palace at the other end of St. Mark’s Square. The children not only experience the magnificence and splendour of these buildings but are offered the opportunity to make out the visible traces left by the complex and often dramatic historical development which occurred as the Venetian Republic ended and came under the dominion of Napoleonic France and then Habsburg Austria. At the same time, however, they see how Venice maintained its identity and the fundamentally Italian nature of its art. A single ticket for a truly “unique” visit.
Length: 2 hours 30 minutes
