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.

We did the "Secret Tour" which comes with a tour guide and special access to different areas as well as the prison section. We found this to be very interesting and well worth a little extra money. Our guide was very informative and passionate and...More

This is a must-see whilst in Venice, if only for the opportunity to walk across the world-famous Bridge of Sighs, which isn't what most people expect!

Doge's Palace has two parts, the Palace itself and the adjoining prison. Both are fantastic places to see but an audio guide is a must or you won't understand what your looking at. These are only €5 but identification is needed. It will take a...More

Lots of tourists as you would expect but with the place being so spacious this wasn't a problem. Everything well organised with great descriptions throughout. There was no qeue when we visited but just in case, book tickets online to skip to front.

Always wanted to visit the palace and it didn't let me down. Fascinating history. Its best to get there as early as possible to avoid the lengthy queues outside.

The Doge's Palace is another "must do" in Venice. It is incredibly crowded but is absolutely gorgeous. We went with a guide - which allowed us to skip the line (and was well worth it). Formerly a government building as well as a jail.

I don't know what the "secret itinerary" tour is, but with ANY ticket into the Doge's Palace, you can indeed walk across the bridge of sighs and see all of the prison area.
