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.

This was History, geography and magnificent Art and suclptures almost beyond believe. An amazing building, and so enjoyable, but for lack of disabled facilities Venice does not lend itself to assist even those with slight mobility problems.!

A guide will make this better. Our guide was full of knowledge of some much of the history and art. I'm sure the audio tours are good, but the insight we garnered was perfect. You get to walk through the bridge of sighs to the prison and back.

This looks amazing, it is very big and there is a lot to see for everyone (arts, armory, archeology). It's big and has nice history.

Sadly the doge's apartments were not accessible. Fantastic artwork, ceilings, and a nice escape from the crowds.

Get your tickets in a package deal at the Correr Museum. Shorter line!! Spend at least an hour or more at the palace. The guides are quite interesting! Save time to check out the prison area.

It is wonderful to get an insight into the political system of Venice.The palace is beautiful and full of amazing art but it also reveals the darker side of historic Venice.It is a must see venue and one to visit more than once. The ticket price changes every time I visit but it is not too expensive and worth every... More

A must see while in Venice!! I wish we would have had more time to see everything and do some of the special tours, like the Secret Itineraries Tour, but what we did see was extremely interesting. All of the palace is stunning but my husband and I are a little different and we really enjoyed the prisons and walking... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
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.
