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 truly is beautiful, with life music at the restaurant and a beautiful view of the ocean. We found that the restaurant was very expensive, worth to have a drink here and enjoy the ambience of Venice. The restaurant's at the bottom of Doges' Palace...More

The Doges' Palace is an excellent place to visit. Whether or not you appreciate art or history. Whether or not you have done your research. This place has plenty for everyone. The palace is huge and, despite the volume of visitors, we found it easy...More

This is a deservedly popular attraction, and in high season, you probably need to book ahead online. We didn't, but came in late September and, staying in the city, got there at 8.45, fifteen minutes after opening and so got in immediately. I would recommend...More

We went around the middle of the afternoon in late August and there was no lines. We traveled to a number of famous palaces in Europe and this is beautiful in it's own way. The marble and the architecture are amazing! It's a must-go place...More

The Doges palace is spectacular and worth waiting in line for. We lucked out and went on a Monday afternoon in September, waiting in line for only 10-15 minutes. Every inch of the palace was covered in art and overdone architecture. My neck and back...More

Another must do whilst in Venice. Come prepared for a long wait and large crowds, can be tough on a hot day.

So amazing, I can't think of anywhere more wonderful. I had read so much about this palace but it was far better than I had expected. Going over the Bridge of Sighs into the prison was awsome

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.
