most important thing is to book your tickets on line. Unless you arrive really early the lines are long. If you have tickets already you can skip the line without paying a fortune. We booked the audio tour. Useful but way too much detail. they need to update it and make it more entertaining especially for younger visitors. However this place is amazing. There is such a lot to see. Really astonishing to see how there is a wonderful palace sitting on top of horrendous prisons. Gives a really good idea about how the venetian state operated.

Beautiful palace with great views of the surrounding area. Book in advance or visit late in the day to avoid long lines.

After having missed out on visiting the palace during my first couple of visits, finally made it inside. Sadly found it a great disappointment as there wasn't much to see inside.

The regular tour of the Doge’s Palace (the Palazzo Ducale) in Venice is extraordinary enough. The building is a quite remarkable example of Gothic civic architecture. Every stone, passageway and artwork evokes the power that the Serene Republic wielded over a millennium of unparalleled imperial power. But you might want to dig even deeper – to explore the hidden corners of the palace on the Itinerari Segreti del Palazzo Ducale (the secret tour of the Doge’s Palace).

Get there early to book a ticket on the special touryou get to see areas and things most people dont know about! You also get to to the normal tour / walk around.

On the tour you will get to see where Casanova was in-prisoned and where he made his escape from, the hidden ways behind the scenes ( and sometimes on top of them ! ), torture rooms, Your tour is likely to end at the Ponte dei Sospiri or Bridge of Sighs … the final walk of prisoners across the water to the ‘new prison’.

While not as marvelous as some of the other palaces in Florence or Rome, definitely worth a visit in Venice. The adjoining prison and walking across the Bridge of Sighs is interesting to kids.

Il Palazzo Ducale, tra i più bei palazzi di Venezia, sarà per la posizione, si trova in Piazza San Marco, con una parte che dà sulla piazza e l'altro sul Canal Grande e la colonna con il Leone Marciano. Unico per via del suo stile che assorbe quello bizantino e quello orientale.
Al suo interno si trova una delle pinacoteche più importanti d'Italia dove potrete ammirare le opere di Tintoretto, Francesco Bassano, Paolo Veronese e tanti altri. Non perdete tempo, questo Palazzo è tutto da scoprire.
