The Doge’s Palace, where the world’s most famous lover have caroused and become imprisoned for possessing books on magic.

Casanova’s Revenge

By Anita Draycott

There’s a mysterious and quirky side to Venice that adds to her allure.

Where else would the world’s most famous lover have caroused and become imprisoned in the Doge’s palace for possessing books on magic? Casanova and his cellmate, a renegade priest, escaped by gouging a passage in the ceiling using a steel bar which they concealed in a Bible under a heaping plate of gnocchi.

Take a guided “Secret Itineraries” tour through narrow passages of the Doge’s Palace and see the tiny cell where Casanova was imprisoned.
