A masterpiece of Gothic art and a repository of countless art treasures, the Doge’s Palace features a number of different and intricate architectural and ornamental details, dating
back to the 9th century.
It was the former residence of the Doges and governmental centre of power in Venice. The building – superbly decorated by artists like Titian,Tiepolo and Tintoretto – not only houses temporary exhibitions but can also be visited thanks to self-guided routes that allow visitors access to all of its rooms.
The Doge’s Palace is also connected to the Bridge of Sighs, which served as a direct walkway to the annexed prisons. You can visit it as part of some of the tours.
