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.

It is realy a grand place. As always in Italy it is a bit hard to find ones way, no logic in what way you are going. The exebition with jewlery from India and todays bigest jewlers was a nice adition.

Definitely worth the price to get in. Beautiful place to see. Lines were not to bad when we went in December, but you can save time if you ordered your tickets ahead of time. Especially enjoyed seeing the weapons room ,

A must see once you are in Venice. Wonder around and admire the great palace and prisons and especially the Bridge of Sighs.

Its a great palace to visit and know the history of Venice. However, if you wear revealing dresses, you will have to buy scarves over there and cover yourself, so dress properly.

plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and

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.
