THE DOGE’S PALACE IN VENICE: WORKS, ENTRANCE TICKETS AND OPENING TIMES
The Doge’s Palace in Venice is a must see for every tourist who visits the lagoon city.
The building lies next to the Basilica of St. Mark, and sums up all the history of Venice, its conquests, battles and domination over the Mediterranean Sea.
The Doge’s Palace in Venice was the residence of the Doge, and was used for the administration of justice and for political and legislative activity.
Each statue, each painting and each capital is located in this building with the specific purpose of showing the power and the wealth of Venice to the world (as I’ve already explained in the post I dedicated to the history of the Doge’s Palace).
THE DOGE’S PALACE IN VENICE: WORKS TO SEE
It’s difficult to make a list of the unmissable artworks housed in the Doge’s Palace in Venice.
Just a word of advice: go through all rooms, because you’ll admire the places used for political and legislative activity, but also the rooms of the Doge’s Apartment and the Prisons become famous thanks to Silvio Pellico and where Giacomo Casanova escaped from.
Along the itinerary, you’ll find the artworks of the most important Venetian artists, from Giovanni Bellini to Titian, from Tintoretto to Paolo Veronese and many more.
The works you can’t miss are certainly the paintings housed in the Great Council Chamber, and which deserve to be admired for a long time.
