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 booked the secret itineraries tour and were very happy that we did. The tour guide provided historical background throughout the tour of both the mainstream part of the palace as well as the prisoner's cells, administrative chambers, and hidden passageways. This is a good tour to better understand the history of Venice through the ages.

Wonderful palace, with most impressive rooms, enormous paintings, and historical jails! Great temporary Bosch exhibition. With 20 Euros reasonably priced.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Venice. A very interesting place with loads of history, art and politics to take in. We just followed the signs and took in as much as we could. Queues can be long so book online and whizz past everyone. We booked as we stood in the line, then slipped into... More

The Palace was free for wheelchair users and their carer. A ramp was provided to get through the entrance. Once inside staff were very helpful with the lift that enabled us to access the different floors of this wonderful palace.

It's everything anyone has ever said and more - breathtaking! Almost an overdose. We had pre-paid tickets so we just walked in. The crowds are a bit overwhelming, but you have to do it.

My wife & I booked through Viator like many others, but chose to go with just the Doges Palace & St Marks basilica. I'm glad we did, as that was 2.5 hrs long just in itself. NOT boring by any means, and Im glad we took the time we did. I would def recommend Turive Tours - not because of... More

The square was so alive with both locals and tourists, eating, drinking, relaxing, taking pictures and of course feeding the birds. The shops around the square offer more than enough for gift shopping with reasonable prices, and so much to choose from.

This is the really beautiful palace that is located on St. Mark's Square. It is definitely worth it to see it as it full of really wonderful rooms and paintings. This museum is included in the 24 euro Museum Pass. This pass also allowed us to miss the line. However it wasn't busy when we went to see it.

Pre-buy tickets at Correr Museum to avoid queueing. Beautiful buildings. internally, wonderful construction and opulent gilded plasterwork framing beautiful bright wall and ceiling paintings. Typically over-the-top as one might expect. A marked contrast to the dreadfully frugal, brute-force-secure dungeons over the bridge of sighs. Could have done a great deal more to bring the place to life for visitors -... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
