Not included in the museum card, this vast building houses several different galleries, all of which have separate pricing and house rotating exhibits. The building is impressive and worth a venture inside even if you don't visit any of the galleries it contains.

We were under the wrong impression that this was a grand palazzo to tour like some of the others. Not so! Upon entering, there was a tennis exhibition in the main entryway. There was an exhibit of works by Picasso, but it required a separate...More

The Ducal Palace is used as exhibition space mostly. We viewed the Picasso exhibition which was worth a visit.

The Doge's palace has secret passage ways and a labyrinth of rooms and passages. There's always an art exhibition on here and this trip I caught Picasso! Well worth a visit.

This is really an exhibition centre, though the entrance on the cathedral side is quite impressive, and you can cut through here to Piazza di Ferrari via a large open span reception area.
