An absolute must see in Venice. If your weary from the masses of people in Venice this is worth the €20 to see the palace and be sure to show your student card if you are one as the price goes down a fair bit. Beautiful architecture to be seen and a nice bit of Venetian history to find here during your stay and I was in awe of some of the ceilings in the room it was fantastic. You also walk through the bridge of sighs which is a cool experience.

Amazing place but I recommend the following: 1. Buy your tickets beforehand. Buying tickets will cost you at least 20min wait in a line filled with frustrated folks. 2. Take a guide (audio guide, book or actual guide) because the explanation on site are limited. Otherwise a must see..

Nice place to visit, with very nice painting and building . However allow an extra hour to visit the place and be sure to go early enough. We went a 4pm and we're told it takes about 90 minutes to visit the whole place. However after 60 minutes we were asked to leave as the place was closing (30 minutes earlier than told). When you pay 40€ to get in and rush through things and can't finish the visit because it is closing earlier than told, it ruins the entire experience.

An absolutely amazing structure, and part of Venetian history for the best part of a thousand years. There was so much to see and so much history to drink in. The Italians love a ceiling - no artex in here. The grand chamber is out of this world, and unreal in terms of size and the prisons give it an eerie vibe. Make sure you pre-book your tickets and jump 90% of the queues. It’s a bit of a faff, but when you find the shorter queue it goes much quicker.

Can I give ten stars? I lived in Rome and Florence for a while and thought nothing could have shocked me anymore. But not this time. Every room in this palace are so extremely gorgeous that I couldn't stop wowing for even one sec. I love the palace more than the Vatican's museum.

Book in advance for the guided secret tour that takes you out of the gilded reception rooms and into the old offices, meeting rooms and even torture chambers where the real business was conducted.

The palace was the residence of the Doge of Venice, the supreme authority of the Republic of Venice. It is a palace built in Venetian Gothic style, and one of the main landmarks of the city of Venice.

Better to take the ticket and enter the Palace. Everything is huge, as for Venice, great art on walls and ceilings, impressive tour through the Bridge of Whispers to Prison facilities!

Secret itinerary tour is a must, casanova story is really interesting.

When you enter the inner courtyard, you'll see a flight of stairs to the Doge's private quarters, known as the "Scala dei Giganti" and flanked by huge statues of Mars and Neptune.

Ponte dei Sospiri -the entrance of prison- is a part of this palace. It is said that the prison becomes too cold in winter and too hot in summer which ensures the prisoners are always tormented.

Well organized progression from room to room makes it easy to self-guide. Audio guide not necessary; written guides are abundant. Go very early or very late to avoid crowds and tour groups.

Absolutely sign up ahead of time for the Secret Itineraries tour. You skip the line, get an interesting tour and are free to wander the Palace afterwards.

Not too crowded, really cool place to visit, Tintoretto and Veronese paintings. If you have an hour I do recommend to visit.

Beautiful palace! In the palace prisons, there is a room that displays prisoner graffiti, but also look for etchings on cell window sills. In the armory, you'll also find a chastity belt on display.

Amazing building for a gallery. If you have a spare couple of hours it's definitely worth it

If you are visiting during winter, do not forget your warmest jacket. Although this place is amazing the cold may ruin your visit.
Tip by Salvatore De Carmine on Friday the 26 of June, 2015 at 11:22 am
One of the beautiful buildings adorning piazza San Marco. Will have to return to visit the interior.

Visit the Doge's Palace and follow the self guided tour. The meeting rooms are amazing and the art is stunning.
Tip by Shweez on Saturday the 14 of June, 2014 at 8:36 pm
It is a good place to start with in Venice! Combination of breath taking archeticture and historical monuments.
Tip by Grace Mazza on Thursday the 20 of June, 2013 at 2:48 pm
The secret passage tour is interesting, but just note that it's in the roof and very hot during the summer, since there's no AC
Tip by Zane Zēniņa on Monday the 21 of November, 2016 at 11:56 am
Worth visiting,because of the impressive artwork. You will not be dissapointed.
Tip by Grazyna Kosno on Sunday the 18 of January, 2015 at 12:00 pm
Magnificent:-) You will find a lot of great art here but the architecture is also impressive.
