  • Casanaova’s break scavenger hunt


This tour takes place in the amazing Doge’s Palace, the seat of government of Venice for over a thousand years! This engaging scavenger will let you discover the   most representative institutional rooms of Doge’s Palace, ornated by the most important Renaissance artists, as well as the prisons and it also includes the Bridge of Sighs! Needless to say, this tour will be a very good chance also for the grown-ups to get to know more about the history of the city, about its political organization and most especially about its effective system of justice.


We will explore the most important museum of Venice by following the footsteps of a famous guy, the  irresistible Giacomo Casanova who was imprisonned in  the Doge’s Palace: after an unsuccessful attempt, he found the way to escape! They kept him in jail for some minor crimes but the real reason of his detention was never proved. Are our detectives smart enough to solve all the riddles and find the truth? Follow us!
