Golden Hour at Punta
Guided tour and Cocktail on the belvedere terraces of Punta della Dogana
Every Friday in September at 6 pm, a guided tour dedicated to the history of Punta della Dogana and an exclusive cocktail on the terraces is organised by Palazzo Grassi - Punta della Dogana. The ancient Sea Custom House of Venice is presented under a unique point of view, through a guided tour that starts from the 15th century, with the developments of Venice’s commercial activities, to this day, with the renovation project by architect Tadao Ando and the transformation of the building into a museum of contemporary art.
The tour ends with a cocktail on the terraces of Punta della Dogana, after the closure of the museum at 7 pm. It is a unique opportunity to enjoy an unprecedented view over St. Mark's basin and to live the exclusive experience of the museum behind closed doors.
The cost of the visit is 50 euros and includes: admission ticket, guided tour dedicated to the history of Punta della Dogana and cocktail on the terraces with prosecco, spritz, fresh juices and typical Venetian cicchetti.
Tickets are available online or at the ticket office of the two museums, until capacity is reached.
The ticket also provides access to Palazzo Grassi starting from the following day and is valid until the end of the exhibition. Every Saturday at 5 pm a free guided tour of the exhibition 'Cows by the Water – Albert Oehlen' is offered to the visitors. Click here to discover more.
