Discover Museums in Venice by Night

No Comments

It’s called “Museums in the moonlight” organized by the City Museums.  It’s a great idea that you’ll love right away.  If you want to enjoy the immeasurable artistic patrimony hosted in these Venetian Museums in a new atmosphere, but without the infinite long lines, why not visit them by night?

We’ve already reviewed how beautiful Venice is under the moonlight, and we won’t stop giving you more “alternative” options to your visit. A change in perspective is always good. In this case it’s one of the most important foundations, one that groups together some of the most beautiful museums in the city, from the Doge’s Palace to Ca’ Pesaro and the Correr Museum to Ca’ Rezzonico.

This experimental initiative to visit the museums at night allows you to visit the Doge’s Palace up until 11 p.m. (last entrance at 10:00p.m.) It is the Palace that has represented Venice and it’s republic, (Serinissima) throughout the centuries. It was also the home to the Doge. You can explore the marvels during the nocturnal hours until the weekend of Friday October 16th- till Sunday 18th.

You will also be able to book a guided tour for adults and interactive tours for the family which are available in different languages. (Italian, English, French, German.)

If you would like to know more about what you can see, have a look at the virtual tour of the museum, made possible by the Google Art Project:

The night atmosphere in Venice offers unforgettable moments. Imagine exploring the San Marco Palace in the silence of the night and under moonlight.  The Scala dei Giganti will appear more opulent while the Bridge of sighs will seem more eerie and filled with secrets.
