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 bought discounted senior tickets and walked through on our own without a tour. Signs in English throughout explaining everything. Prisons, Bridge of Sighs and the appeal rooms very interesting as well as the walls and ceilings of the ante chambers. Highly recommend.

Sorry all you Venice aficionados. Overpriced, dull "attraction." Courtyard is the only beautiful location. Interior: huge, sterile ballrooms adorned with barely visible paintings (yes, they are hundreds of years old -- I know that), and the subjects of the painting are, naturally, the inhabitants of...More

Of course this is one of the beautiful things you must see in Venice. Get there early so you are not stuck in crowds. It is very beautiful and incredible to see the prison part and the last bit of light the prisoners saw
