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.

Overflowing with beautiful art, mixed with the long history of Venice and its unusual government. The Il Paradiso is a highlight - an astonishingly large painting with a riot of detail.

I'm not sure if you would be able to visit the entire palace but just to go in the square within in palace is quite beautiful and would be worth visiting.
