Spent a good amount of time here admiring the art work and architecture and getting to grips with the history. Would have spent longer if we'd been able to get an audio guide, but as it was Easter weekend,there were none available as it was very very busy! One of Venice's must see attractions.

Go on the secret tour, it's fascinating. This wasn't just a palace but a working office with prison and torture chamber! The public rooms are amazing. You can see the wealth of Venice for hundreds of years.

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..

Stunning ceilings in a gorgeous setting behind the Basilica of St. Mark. The path through the palazzo is fixed, so it can easily take over an hour, or considerably more if you are easily mesmerized by beauty. Well worth it. The prison is part of the same tour, and while interesting, still has a palpable residue of pain and despair. Some will want to rush through while others linger.

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.

An absolute must see. The artwork is incredible and there is a lot to view. Words can't describe the utterly brilliant craftsmanship that went into its construction and decoration. Wasn't too crowded at all when I went. Definitely worth the entrance fee of 20 euro

Amazingly beautiful. The museum part cost extra on top of the entrance fee. You get to cross the bridge of sighs, see the largest room in the EU, all the history there was amazing. This is for sure somewhere you must visit if you travel to Venice! Just get a skip the line during the summer or go early in the morning. A+ all the way!

Great sight to see while in Venice. Can cross over the Bridge of Sighs from inside here. Hundreds of paintings to admire if you're into that kind of thing. Has an armoury and each room has a plaque which explains what it's function was in the old venetian state.

The place is lovely and worth a visit. The wait to get in is huge though. The ‘skip the cue’ cue is the same cue as everyone else until the last 20m. And then the non prepaid is quicker! So don’t pre book! Staff don’t really have a clue what they are doing and don’t really care too much. Shame really as the place is lovey.

A must visit when you see Venice. I got the multi museum pass and it was a lot of fun. You can rush it in just under 2 hours as it also includes the prisons. If you have appreciation for the art, history and religion you can easily spend a whole day inside. I recommend checking out the schedule as they offer guided English tours and guided secret(extended) tours on certain dates. Otherwise you should at least get a digital tour guide device from the ticket office as it will make the visit a lot more enjoyable and insightful. The palace opens at 08:30 and i urge you to be there at that time because by 10:00 the queue will be monstrous. Another caveat, when i visited, the dodges chambers were hosting another art exhibit and you had to pay extra for it. If you had the multi pass it was 10 extra euro, otherwise 2 euro to get it.

Amazing place, obviously. Lines seem long but actually don't take that long. Temperatures inside are great even when it's scorching outside. The sheer amount of artistry and the wealth of information about the Venetian Republic is amazing.
Phil Yeomans | mai 30, 2018
So interesting to see the opulence of the Doge from years gone by then to deteriorate to the prisons. Staff very couteous and pricing realistic. An unexpected walk over the Bridge of Sighs increased the pleasure of the visit. The prison really was not nice. The weapon room hideous, to see first had the items they used to destroy another human being at such close quarters interesting undoubtedly but not comfortable. Drama on exit as square was cordoned off and a controlled explosion carried out by the police in a waste bin and square evacuated... Blimey....

One of the most beautiful places I have ever been. Architecture is wonderful. Art is wonderful. Rooms are wonderful. History is fascinating. Not very crowded. Absolute must-see!
Doc Oz | mai 23, 2018
We had an after-hours private tour of the Doge's Palace which was wonderful as there were no crowds. The history of the Palace was very interesting. The huge wall/ceiling frescos, canvass paintings, Gothic and Renaissance architecture, and walkways/ceilings adorned in gold are all amazing. You also get to walk across the Bridge of Sighs. Also, when you get to the large hall, take note of a black cloth covering a painting of a Doge (a duke/nobleman/head of the republic). He was reported to be a traitor.

Of all the things there are to see and do in Venice the Doge’s Palace is the one that you should not miss. At twenty euros entrance fee it’s expensive, but for an extra four euros you can also get entry to three other municipally owned museums - though none are as spectacular as this. It’s definitely worth buying a skip-the-line ticket online as the queues quickly build. I also recommend visiting early, before the cruise ships disgorge their hoards of visitors. We managed to get in line before the palace opened and were rewarded with a tour of the building almost completely on our own. It takes about an hour or more to complete the tour of the spectacular and lavishly decorated palace. Walls and ceilings are relentlessly covered with renaissance art by the likes of Tintoretto. It is impossible not to be awed by the skill and artistry on display. After exploring the palace you cross the bridge of sighs into the very different atmosphere of the prison. I am not at all spiritual, nor do I believe in ghosts, but I was struck by a palpable feeling of bleakness and despondency. It sent shivers down my back!
Martin Ortlieb | juin 12, 2018
If you get there early, it is working well. Even with kids, this is a great exciting palace to visit, especially the dungeons were a favorite. The big hall is most stunning, and we couldn't figure out how they built it to stay up. For the stuff you get, this was also reasonably priced. We might consider going back next time we're there, it was that good.
Maz Ahmadi | juin 10, 2018
A must-see in Venice. Make sure to book in advance. If you get a guided tour online, you can skip the long lineups. The Palace is not just a Palace. It also houses the Republic's old courthouse and prison! There are secret passages throughout the Palace. Lots of beautiful ceilings filled with artwork that is framed in gold!
Minus Sixty Eight | juin 13, 2018
Wonderful way to spend an early morning. Get here early and enjoy the place on your own. Definitely a place you’re going to already, but I essentially had the place to myself getting there at open on a Wednesday.
Katie Hallock | juil. 9, 2018
This place is incredible. So do yourself a favor and hire a tour guide to walk you through. There is so much interesting history that you wouldn’t know about walking through on your own. There were many signs or plaques explaining what you were seeing. But even if you can’t swing the guide, this place is still so worth it because it’s stunningly gorgeous! Every single room is dripping in beauty. Every wall and ceiling is covered in murals or beautiful wood carvings painted gold. Even the staircases and hallways or breathtaking. Bring your camera/phone, because you’re allowed to take pictures everywhere! We arrived around 9:30a on a Thursday in Mid July and the line To get in stretched the length of the long building. But we’d seen it twice as long around noon the day before. Definitely go early! And plan on taking about an hour and a half to walk through.
Matt Wittkopp | juil. 23, 2018
Palace opens at 0830, we arrived on a Saturday morning at 0815, there was one other person in line. We had purchased the museum pass so we only had to wait to get through security. Being the second person in the museum was very nice as we didn't have to deal with a lot of people. We were able to see the museum in about an hour but we were moving kind of fast. There are bathrooms and a baby changing station inside. We walked by later in the afternoon and there was no line to enter the museum at that time. Definitely worth the money, definitely worth spending the money on the museum pass!

Wonderful experience, we did not have a guide but wish we did as we got turned around at one point. Larger than we thought from the outside. Was very happy to see all the armor and weapons. Did not realize some of the dungeon cell doors used to be only a few feet tall. There is also a restaurant/ cafe, we only got coffee but it was delicious.
CM Jones | juil. 21, 2018
This place was quite spectacular. The amount of gold used to decorate this house is insane. And the size of it was quite impressive. Give yourself plenty of time to walk around. We made the mistake of having an appointment for the Bell tower so we had to leave and the Bell tower was nothing compared to this. We could have stayed for much longer. There is a weapons room my family liked also.
