Doge's Palace


Formerly the doge’s residence and the seat of Venetian government, the Palace is the very symbol of Venice. A masterpiece of Gothic architecture, the building and its sculptural decoration date from various periods. The interior – with works by artists such as Titian, Veronese, Tintoretto, Vittoria and Tiepolo – comprises vast council chambers, delicately-decorated residential apartments and austere prison-cells. Along the facades of the Palace run loggias that overlook St. Mark’s Square and the lagoon. The Doge’s Palace is included in the combined entrance ticket which also allows access to the Museo Correr, Museo Archeologico Nazionale and Monumental Rooms of Biblioteca Marciana.

Museo Correr


This museum is housed in part of the Procuratie Nuove and in the Napoleonic Wing that runs along the top end of St. Mark’s Square. Its core collection, left to the city in 1830 by Teodoro Correr, covered various areas of interest, and nowadays the museum contains major sculptures by Antonio Canova (in the imposing neoclassical rooms) and historical collections that illustrate aspects of the city's political institutions and everyday life. Laid out by Carlo Scarpa, the Picture Gallery has one of the world’s greatest collections of pre-17th century Venetian painting, with works by Lorenzo Veneziano, the Bellini family, Carpaccio, Cosmè Tura, Antonello da Messina and Lorenzo Lotto.
Highly important services are associated with the Museum: the Library of Venetian Art and History, with its major collection of codices and archive documents, the famous Cabinet of Prints and Drawings, the Photographic Archive, the Centre for Cataloguing and multi-media production.

The Museo Correr is included in the combined entrance ticket which also allows access to the Doge’s Palace, Archaeological Museum and Monumental Rooms of Biblioteca Marciana.
