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...more

Stunning building in a stunning location. This is definitely worth visiting, we were on a strict budget and only visited the outside of this as we have seen so many pictures of the inside but even if you only see the outside you wont be...More
We decided to visit the Doge Palace on our own and we had a great time! Each room is unique and more beautiful than the other. It’s a fascinating palace and the visit takes about 60 to 90 minutes. There are explanations in each room...More
Doge' s Palace is not a "palace" in the conventional meaning, but more like a combination of leader' s residence, courts of law, prisons, state services etc, all the way decorated with fabulous pieces of art by artists like Tintoretto and Veronese.

The secret itinerary tour was full of loads of great information. Suited a family with teenage children. Was fine even in 28 degree heat. Could explore at own pace after but got to see places you couldn't otherwise get to.
You do need to go with a guide and preferably with a Venetian! So much can be learnt about Venice as a whole. The rooms and Art contained within the Palace are wonderful and should be given time to absorb, so a second visit is...More
This was part of an afternoon tour that we took. The tour allowed us to skip the line which was very large. Some beautiful paintings including the largest oil painting in the world. Ceilings were outstanding, it seemed gold was everywhere. Overlooking St Mark’s Square,...More
Doge's Palace is a beautiful place to visit. The tour takes you through many rooms with fantastic art, decorations and furniture. Highly recommend getting a Skip the Line pass as this is a very popular attraction.
We visited Doge's Palace along with the Basilica and both were worth visiting because we purchased a tour that allowed us to minimize the line waiting times. I would personally not recommend a guided tour for either place, but that is just our personal preference....More
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and
Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.

I don’t want to misinform you. If it’s not explicitly stated that you have skip-the-line access, I’d assume you don’t. The lines were interminable and you’re in the searing hot sun. I’d confirm before I go.

A previous poster suggested you book the Secret Itineraries tour which is what we did also. That way you get to see more of the palace that is not otherwise open to visitors. And when you are finished you just stay in the palace and tour at your own rate of speed.
