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.

I did the whole museum in 40 minutes before closing time. We got there at 6p (closes at 7p) and the museum was empty. The Hieronymus Bosch painting wasn't there, it's on tour until 25 Nov 2016 so I really just wanted to walk over...More

The Doges' palace is a must see if you are in Venice! I would recommend going later in the evening around 4-5pm, the lines were way too long earlier in the day. The tour was $38 for two adults and it included the palace, bridge...More

Worth the entrance fee. However, beware. Do not buy your "combined" ticket ahead of time, as we did. The other included museums are all on strike and they will not refund us for the unused portion of the ticket. Wait until you get here to...More

Get there at 8:15 and be at the head of the queue. We did that, opening is 8:30 and it was really worth it. You can take as long as you like to explore the Palace but if time is limited, you can see still see a lot.
