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 really enjoyed this visit. We've been to Venice several times, never had the chance to visit Ducal Palace. You may walk by the cells and the Bridge of Sights where prisoners used to walk to be jugded.

If you don't like art but want culture then visit here. The palace has many beautiful rooms to walk around.

Well worth going to see just inside is beautiful and then you can go across the bridge of sighs into the prison at the other side. There is a lot of history and all the signs in there have an English section
