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.

We came close to not going however the rain pulled us in and we were so lucky. The palace is magnificent and you continue to explore different areas through and it was such an enjoyable time. We didn't take a tour or purchase the guide....More

So worth a visit, but allow plenty of time as there is so much to gaze on. And you could leave with a stiff neck after looking up at the incredible art work on the ceilings.

Doge's Palace is the huge former residence of leader in venice, now its a museum. A massive building with the arches that run along the palace. Its very symmetrical in design and details. One of the most crowded area in venice.

This magnificent building, the home of the doges, is a must during your trip. The queues in September were nominal and the inside is awesome. Wonderful staircases, amazing ceilings, chambers and a fantastic history.

Do a little research before you visit and this will make a fabulous experience for anyone over the age of 12. The ceilings are beautiful and every room tells a story. Don't miss the gold stairway. And you must walk across the Bridge of Sighs...More

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.
