  • The Golden Staircase (Scala d'Oro) dates back to the mid-15th century. This ornate central staircase offered an impressive entrance for visiting dignitaries
  • Bypass the often-lengthy lines to get right into the public chambers and fascinating history of Venice's once-all-powerful Doges
  • Also get access to historical highlights Correr Museum, Biblioteca Marciana, and Archeological Museum, all on St. Mark's Square

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).

It was nice to bypass lines especially when you aren't spending a lot of time in Venice.

Found audio guide in English inadequate and confusing. Doge's apartments were not mentioned en bloc, so missed many individual room audio descriptions till too late. So thought audio guide 50% ineffective.
This is no reflection on Tiqets themselves, but I think the palace management should
standardise the contents list on the audio guide to all the actual names displayed in the palace.

Absolutely fantastic, must visit venue. The queues were very long in the morning ( maybe because a cruise ship was docked?) but we went around 3.00 pm and had a very comfortable visit with no queuing. Definitely recommend ore booking.

Fabulous palace. Skip the line worked well, waited 2 minutes to get in and then security line.

Getting the tickets online allowed us to skip the long entrance line. We bought The tickets the same morning we went. And used mobile ticket option. The Palace has beautiful architecture and art and the prisons are interesting to see.
