Skip the line with these tickets to Doge's Palace. Doges were elected officials who led the Venetian Republic between the eighth and eighteenth centuries. The Doge's palace, in addition to being the doges' living quarters, held the Venetian government's offices, courtrooms, and even a jail.
The current Palace dates back to the 14th century, having been built after the original structure was destroyed by fire. The Venetian Gothic exterior is impressive, but the palace's interior really dials up the splendor: there is a golden staircase, fresco-adorned walls, decorated ceilings, and breathtaking paintings. The Doge's power is truly on display.
These tickets gives you access to other sites on Saint Mark's Square. You can visit the Correr Museum, with its marble floor and lifelike statues. You can pop into the renowned reading room at the national library, the Biblioteca Marciana. And lastly, you get access to the fascinating Archaeological Museum, which is filled with ancient statues, art, and vases that date back millennia. It's a combo not to be missed!
