Elisabeth of Bavaria, Empress of Austria, better known as Sissi, used to spend more or less long periods in Venice staying at the Royal Palace which was renovated and customized to pay homage to her.

The sovereign of Austria, in the city of Venice, spent her time writing poetry and walking in the Royal Gardens with her gaze turned towards the San Marco Basin.

Since 2012, Palazzo Reale, current Museo Correr, has dedicated a particular itinerary to Sissi, starting from 2021, this “tour” will be expanded, with an additional 14 rooms that complete the imperial apartments and their secret passages will be accessible to visitors.
