The Doge Palace was a surprise hit for our group. I went with some students and we were glad that it was near the end of our tour. Many of the places we went in Venice were full of tourists. The Doge Palace was like an oasis of calm. In addition there were benches in the shade for a chance to recoup before we moved through the palace. The architecture was beautiful and all of the displays were multilingual. Some prefered the art, others architecture and some the dungeons. There was definitely enough to keep us interested.Students under the age of 18 in Italy can go to any museum for free. We just showed them their passports. Many Italian museums require you to leave all of your large backpacks and bags in the "coat check" and the Doge Palace is no exception. We spent some time in the courtyard admiring the palace while we rehydrated,snacked and used the restrooms.
