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.

Very interesting historic palace. The Doge's rooms were big, posh and covered in wall-to-wall paintings. The children loved the prison, armory and dungeon. Fun for the whole family next door to the Basilica.

Don't spend the money on the audio you won't need it. They had half the rooms closed for renovation with no signs to that effect so was a bit disappointing in that respect. We went from room 5 to 14 and got a bit confused...More
