Owner description: 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.

We spent a lovely morning touring this beautiful and unique palace. It's a must to see in Venice! It's reasonably priced and we were lucky viewing it in March there were no queues and it wasn't overly busy. You gain an excellent insight into the history of Venice and it's ruling Doges and their families. It's well laid out, there are fascinating artefacts and artwork and English translations in each room. We walked over the bridge of sighs to the prison which was amazing! I am not a museum buff however this palace was fascinating and gave us a true feel for the history of this amazing city

Went on secret itineraries tour first which lasted one and half hours. Had pre booked tickets online first, easy to collect from main ticket office. Very interesting. Saw the prison cells and the rooms behind the grand palace. Walked across the Bridge of Sighs. The palace itself is beautiful .

We booked the early Secret Itinerary Tour which was very interesting and informative, and afterwards we had time to go around the rest of the Palace. Wish we had got there earlier and got an audio guide for the parts of the Palace not covered by the Secret Itineraries tour. It's a beautiful building and we did enjoy the trip, especially learning all about Casanova from the guide. We spent two or three hours there in total, and could have spent longer.
If you are very claustrophobic or struggle with stairs I wouldn't advise the Secret Itineraries Tour.
There's a gift shop and a cafe, although we didn't stop there.

The visit is well worth the entrance fee (10 Euro's). The building is magnificent, both outside and inside. These Dukes ruled the rich region with iron hand for centuries, untill Napoleon kicked them out.

I did not get to go inside this place the last time I was in Venice. It is so interesting, go with a tour guide to get all the information. We actually walked across The Bridge of Sighs.
