This is a special place to visit. We had a tour through Walks of Italy (highly recommend) and were blown away by the beauty and grandness of the building, art, and decor. A must visit in Venice!

We were in Venice when the temperature was 32 degrees luckily the queue was fast moving and we soon got in. Quite expensive at 20 euros each but fully worth it. Exceptional building especially the ceiling in the council chamber and the prison block across...More

Such beautiful paintings all over this palace. Try and go on a guided tour so that you can learn some of the stories from Venetians about their past government and stories within the palace. There are secret passages and so many paintings to be discussed!...More

The Doge's Palace was a great view of what life was like in Venice. We loved the art work, the gilded halls, the weapons room and tapestries.

We arrived at about 9am on Saturday morning and there was no queue and the palace remained fairly quiet throughout our visit. Interiors are stunning, and the courtyard is lovely too. When the church bells ring they bounce off the walls - very atmospheric. We...More

We bought tickets online ahead of time, to avoid waiting in line. Great idea! We got the Secret Itinerary tour, including the Bridge of Sighs. Beautiful palace, well maintained. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly.

We chose the private English tour of the Palace and felt it was well worth the cost. Our guide was fluent in English and very knowledgeable about the palace. We could spend as much time as we wanted with her in the rooms. There were...More

Hello Wendy, The pass could save you 2 hours wait time at St Marks. Or Doge’s Palace. Try for a guided tour at the Doge’s PALACE. At smaller museums you will probably not need a pass.Cheers
