Full description

Avoid the ticket line at the Doge's Palace, one of Venice's most-visited buildings. Discover centuries of history and cross the Bridge of Sighs. Plus, entry to three more museums is included with this ticket.

Climb the 24-karat Golden Staircase and step inside the governmental seat of the Venetian Republic, once the most powerful republic in Europe. Roam the Institutional Chambers, where the Doge (leader) and Venice's nobles would meet.

Learn about the evolution of the building, a much-copied Gothic masterpiece and symbol of the city, from the 12th to the 20th century. See "Il Paradiso", until recently the largest oil painting in the world, and get spectacular views across St. Mark's Square and the Venetian Lagoon.

Walk across the famous Bridge of Sighs, connecting the palace's courtroom to the New Prisons, and catch the same last glimpse of Venice as its 17th-century prisoners.

Your ticket includes entry to the Correr Museum, designed for Napoleon and later the Venetian residence of the King of Italy, National Archaeological Museum of Venice, and Biblioteca Marciana. All are located nearby on St. Mark's Square.

The Doge's Palace is incredible, with the visit of the prisons, the passage on the bridge of sighs. This is a must visit if you go to Venice. No need to take the audioguides, there are explanations in almost every room. Thanks to the line cutter we did not queue.

Access to the palace is very fast, we waited only 10 minutes. The palace is magnificent, it is worth a look, the visit lasts 2 hours if you take your time. The audio guides are 5 euros and not included in the price (plan your identity papers they take them as a "deposit" for the audio guide.) also be careful if you have a big backpack you will have to put it on in a locker (free) As for the Correr museum and others, we did not get hooked personally.

Very easy process and skipping the line was great! Tip: book Doge’s Palace and St Marco Basilica in advance and as back to back visits on the same day. St Marco online tickets sell out quickly and the lines for same day purchase are long and tiresome in the heat.
