Visiting the Palazzo Ducale of Venice
Doge’s Palace, or Palazzo Ducale of Venice, is the most important and famous monument of Venice, together with Saint Mark’s cathedral. Doge’s palace faces Saint Mark’s square and Saint Mark’s basin, its white and pink facades greeting visitors coming here either walking or by boat.
The Doge’s Palace was the site of the government of the Republic of Venice, and the residence of the Doge (also translated as the Duke).
Therefore, a visit to the Doge’s Palace means much more than just admiring its Gothic architecture and art: it means getting to know the basis of the history of the Serenissima Republic. A typical visit also includes a walk into the prisons’ palace of Piombi.
It is possible to participate to a guided tour of the Secret Itineraries of the Doge’s Palace, but the online booking on the official website is required.
