Overview
More
A masterpiece of Gothic architecture, the building and its sculptural decoration date from various periods. The interior, with works by artists such as Titian, Veronese, Tintoretto, A.Vittoria and Tiepolo, includes vast council chambers, superbly decorated residential apartments, and austere prison cells. Along the facades of the Palace run loggias that overlook St. Mark’s Square and the lagoon. The combined entrance ticket to the St. Mark’s Square Museums grants access to the Doge’s Palace, Museo Correr, Museo Archeologico Nazionale and Monumental Rooms of Biblioteca Marciana.

Our hotel booked our beat the line tickets and cost us €20 each. A fair bit cheaper than advertised elsewhere. The queue is in exactly the same place and saved us a bit of time. The palace is immense. If you’re bothered then you can...More

If you come in the summertime, as I would assume most tourists do, be prepared to be in a very long line! It is worth it though because it is one of the top things to see/do in Venice because of its historical significance but...More

Without doubt this is probably the tourist highlight of Venice, plenty to see you should allow yourself a good couple of hours to visit every nook and cranny. The dungeons and the Bridge of Sighs were my highlight, but, this is simply a stunning building...More

If you have seen Rome, the Vatican- any other palace seems uncomparable. But the Doge's Palace is the Palace in Venice- so might as well see it. To avoid the long lines- get a tour guide.

Best to use “Skip the line” and go early as this place is in St. Mark’s square with lots of tourists. It opens at 8:30 am (at least on weekdays). If I’m honest, this place is better than St.Mark’s Basilica as you can take photos...More

My main reason for going into the Doge's Palace was to walk across the Bride of Sighs, which we did. To get to the bridge, you follow a set route through the palace, which takes you through most of the rooms with all their grand...More

It's worth taking the time to do the guided tour here - there's so much fascinating history and every room is really interesting. Allow a couple of hours to do it properly, and enjoy the views of the grand canal from the ballroom window!
