A must see while in Venice. A nice surprise was to go over the bridge of sighs and into the jail . Money well spent.

Visiting this palace last month and it was absolutely beautiful. We went on a private tour and while it wasn't great, we were still able to appreciate the history of such beautiful place.

Amazing building, amazing art, amazing history. An absolute mustwhen you visit Venice. There are very long queues to enter so be prepared.

Essential viewing for anyone visiting Venice but the queues are crazy so avoid them by booking your tickets in advance online and then you can walk straight in! Allow plenty of time as there really is so much to see!
