Skip the Line at the Doge's Palace

Skip the Line at the Doge's Palace

The landmark Doge's Palace once housed the rulers of Venice, and today it's one of the city's top attractions. The best way to visit is on a skip-the-line tour, ensuring you dodge the crowds and enjoy priority access. See below for your options.

Guided Skip-the-Line Doge's Palace Tours

Joining a guide for a tour through the Doge's Palace allows visitors to use an exclusive tour group entrance rather than the general one used by individual visitors. The separate entrance cuts down on wait times, and tour guides offer greater context for what you're seeing. Discover the artistic masterpieces in the palace and learn how the doges meted out justice from the ornately decorated rooms.

Combo Tours

Most visitors to the Doge's Palace want to see more than just this vestige of the Venetian Republic. Choose a tour that combines skip-the-line entry at the Doge's Palace with a city walking tour, a gondola ride, or a visit to St. Mark's Basilica (once the private church of the doges).

Additional Guided Experiences at the Doge's Palace

A number of areas of the palace are mainly accessible only with a guide. Book a guided skip-the-line ‘secret itineraries’ tour to gain access to areas most visitors never see, including the cells where Casanova was once imprisoned in the attic and the New Prisons on the other side of the Bridge of Sighs (the only way to walk across the famous bridge is with entry to the palace).
