Skip the line to the Doge's Palace in Venice. The exterior hints at the beauty, and inside, with a golden staircase, triumphal arches, and frescoed walls, you'll get a sense of the splendor and power contained herein. This ticket also gets you access to other key sights on St. Mark's Square: Correr Museum, Biblioteca Marciana, and Archeological Museum.
The first Doge's Palace was built on this spot in the 9th century, but was destroyed by fire. The present Gothic palace dates back to the 14th century (with many renovations and refurbishments along the way). However, it stands tall as a beautiful reminder of the power of the Venetian Republic.
To enter the Doge's Palace is to trip back in time to uncover the history and culture of the City of Masks. Inside, you'll find fantastically ornate rooms, decorated by artists such as Titian, Veronese, Tiepolo, and Tintoretto.
Another highlight is walking the notorious Bridge of Sighs - so named for the laments of the convicted criminals as they made their way to the New Prison.
You'll also get access to other St. Mark's Square historical highlights, Biblioteca Marciana, Archeological Museum, and the Correr Museum (originally designed to be a residence for Napoleon).
