4) WHY VISIT THE DOGE'S PALACE?

The Doge’s Palace in Venice is part of the Venice Civic Museums Foundation and is truly a must-see in Venice; the beating heart of the administrative and political life of the Republic of Venice, it has kept the ancient splendor of the Serenissima alive

The history of the Doge’s Palace began a long time ago, probably in the 9th century. Over the centuries the building underwent a real transformation, decorated with wonderful constructive and ornamental elements that have made its appearance incredibly elegant: its sumptuous interiors and refined exteriors will leave you speechless. The works on display inside are no less important: admire masterpieces that boast the signature of great artists such as Titian, Tiepolo, Tintoretto and Veronese, undisputed protagonists of art history. 

After having crossed the entrance to the Doge’s Palace, you’ll find yourself in the splendid inner courtyard, where the majestic Scala dei Giganti lies, a creation designed by Antonio Rizzo between 1483 and 1485. The staircase leads up to the “logge”, the balconies that boast the most spectacular picture-perfect view of Venice. From here, the marvelous Scala d’Oro will take you to the upper floors, to the Sala del Maggior Consiglio and to the noble floor, which houses the Ducal Apartment. 

The ticket to Palazzo Ducale will also allow you to cross the famous Bridge of Sighs and visit the ancient prisons where inmates were locked up in cramped cells and kept in terrible living conditions. Built in the 17th century to link the Doge’s Palace to the Prisons, the Bridge of Sighs owes its peculiar name to the last sigh that prisoners exhaled as "free men" before being locked up.

The Doge’s Palace tickets also include entrance to the Museum of the Opera, where important documents, the capitals that originally adorned the façade and the Armory, which houses weapons and ammunition, are kept. 

If you want to find out more, read our page dedicated to the Doge’s Palace, where you'll find a detailed description of this extraordinary monument.

'nice view'

the skip the line ticket is efficient but time is time. It's not possible to go up the tower even if you are earlier and if there is not to much queue. But the view over venice worths it.

'En vaut vraiment la peine !'

Cela vaut la peine d'acheter le billet à l'avance, la visite du Palais des Doges est magnifique et cela donne l'occasion de visiter les autres sites de la place St-Marc. Il faut juste imprimer l'email et l'échanger au guichet des billets une fois sur place.
