An absolute 'must-see' in Venice.

“The Palace was amazing.
We did a self tour and found the audio explanations to be more than adequate to explain what you were seeing and what specifically occurred in each room”.
CS, USA.
“It was perfect. We went right in going right past a very, very long line of people waiting”. JH, USA.

“Walked straight through the fasttrack lane to collect our tickets upon showing the printed vouchers. Fabulous place to visit and being able to go through the Bridge of Sighs”. MW, Guernsey.

Doge's Palace tickets

Rapid confirmation.

This skip-the-lines ticket covers the Palazzo Ducale and all of the museums in Piazza San Marco (Museo Correr, Museo Archeologico Nazionale, and Sale Monumentali della Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana).

If you're wanting to set your own pace and not take part in a guided tour of the Palazzo Ducale, then this option is for you - though it should be noted that the guided tours we offer will take you to areas that cannot be accessed with a standard entrance ticket.

A ticket purchased for the Doge's Palace is effectively an 'I musei di Piazza San Marco' ticket, to give it its official title. This means that as well as getting you into the Doge's Palace, this ticket gets you into ALL of the museums in Piazza San Marco (Museo Correr, Museo Archeologico Nazionale, Sale Monumentali della Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana). The ticket is valid for three months, but may only be used once for each museum.

You're free to visit at a time of your choosing, from 09.00 in the morning until closing time - and there's no need to queue! The Palazzo is open to the public at the following times:

  • April to October, 08.30 AM to 09.00 PM (11.00 PM on Friday and Saturday).
  • November to February, 08.30 AM to 07.00 PM.

The ticket office closes one hour before the Palazzo closing time. Closed Christmas Day and New Year's Day.

At a glance details:

  •     Voucher must be printed. You must print these vouchers in order to exchange them for your tickets - an email or a copy of the voucher on your phone or mobile device will not suffice.

  •     This is a full 'skip-the-queue' ticket.

  •     At least one hour visit time is recommended.

  •     Piazza San Marco, at the Porta del Frumento, in front of the Bacino di San Marco.

  •     Wheelchair accessible.

    It would have been far easier to find the entrance if it simply said "USE WATERFRONT ENTRANCE" for Doges Palace. So simple.

    If we didn't need to print out the voucher, that would remove another stage of getting tickets... A lot of services do not need paper, trains, payments and other tickets including theatres.

    As we are handicapped travelers, the Doge's Palace staff were very gracious in facilitating the use of their elevator - otherwise we would not have been able to tour many parts that would have been inaccessible.
