For the Doge's Palace in Venice

Piazza San Marco 1

This is the key to a veritable Venetian treasure chest, because one ticket allows entrance to the Doge's Palace, the Correr Museum, the Archeological Museum, the Monumental Salons, and the Marciana Library. The pink-and-white façade of the Doge's Palace is one of the most famous in the world. On view inside are the Doge's apartments, the armory, and the ancient dungeons that are reached by crossing the Bridge of Sighs. The most unforgettable room, though (and supposedly the largest in Europe) is the Grand Salon, with its priceless coffered ceiling and paintings by Tintoretto and Veronese. You can see the robes once worn by the Doges at the Correr Museum, which is housed in a spectacular palazzo and also traces the development of Venetian painting from the 14th to the 16th centuries. An interesting example of this is the Bellini Room, which contains works by four generations of Venice's most famed artistic family.

Because the Doge's Palace is so vast and rich, we recommend you consider an English-language guided tour. This is a wonderful way to maximize the time you spend in these sometimes overwhelming artistic treasure troves. The group tours are held daily at 9:55 am, 10:45 am and 11:35 am.
