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.

One of the greatest museum ever. You need at least 5 hours to explore the main part of it. A really nice place to dive into history an arts.

We took a private tour through this and it was quite interesting. It is quite warm during summer in there, so dress accordingly. But it is beautiful

The day we were here the sites were beautiful but to many people. I thought it took away from the experience.

Beautiful palace and perfect for a rainy day. Get there right when it opens if you Don't have skip the line access with a tour. However, 19E a person is a bit steep considering how many people walk through.

The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one
of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza

clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops,
orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand

plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and

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.

We were surprised that we could get greatly reduced rates as pensioners. We had no family members under 60 so I am sorry I do not know what is available for you.
