Doge's Palace - Review

Tickets From $23.24

The Palace, like its accompanying basilica, was built large to showcase Venice’s indomitable power. The city was ruled from this seat for over a hundred years, and despite its obvious wealth, there’s barely any fortification to the palace, as if the Doge was unconcerned of harm. The architecture is distinctly Venetian, and departs from the styles of most medieval palaces. Highlights and must sees include:

  • Lower loggia and upper solid walls (An inversion of architectural tradition.)
  • An elaborately ornamented exterior.
  • The Porta Della Carta, entrance to the palace, from where important announcements were read out to the public.
  • The Scala dei Giganti – stairs leading to the Doge’s chambers.
  • Sala del Collegio, the room where the doge met ambassadors.
  • Grand Chamber Council on the second floor, with Tintoretto's wall length masterpiece "Paradise".

You’ll also tour through the courtyard, the institutional chambers, the doge’s apartments, the prison and the armoury. From the Doge’s Palace, you can actually access the famed “Bridge of Sighs”.

Doge's Palace, Venice Reviews

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • what a beautiful impressive building so full of history beauty and pain well worth the visit. did a guided tour entitled Inferno based on Dan Brown's book. was exciting to see the places mentioned in the book and especially Dante's death mask
