The palace was magnificent and well maintained. The rooms and artwork really showed Venice in its prime. Make sure you get an audio guide to get full benefit of your visit.

A walk back through time...classic in every way. Very interesting and thoroughly worth visiting. The armory was quite something seeing all those classic weapons and swords.

Beautifully designed palace. We enjoyed the elegance of the main rooms, contrasted with the starkness of the dungeons below. Bridge of Sighs was cool to see. Definitely add this place to your list of things to see while in Venice!

Take the time to see and explore Doge's Palace. There is so much to experience and can take a few hours. It's worth it.

Take a visit in the palace. Excellent wall paintings ! The ticket a bit expensive but you will spend 1 or 2 hours and you will admire all nice decorated rooms where you can rest to the wooden seats and take nice pictures.

I would choose this place over st marks basilica if you are budgeting. Rich in history, art and the prison is well worth a visit. Their armoury exhibit is incredible.

orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand

campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower,
plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and

I think Doge was 20 EUR. Basilica free, but you pay 3 to see some relics and 5 to go up to the balcony/museum
