What to Expect

When you come into Venice from the sea, the first thing you see of this island is the unmistakable silhouette of the Doge's Palace. Having been the seat of political and administrative power of the Venice Republic from its birth to its end, the Doge's palace also known as the Palazzo Ducale is a statement to the splendor of the La Serenissima (Venice). It has 3 fundamental roles: the seat of the government, house of justice and as the Doge's residence. A visit to Doge's Palace will open your eyes to the rich and lavish art, history, and relics of ancient Venice. It boasts an array of Renaissance masterpieces, grand staircases, opulent rooms, and monumental entrances, all of which will leave you enthralled beyond words. You skip the line access to the Palace ensures that you spend more time admiring its many wonders than you do waiting in line to get in.

You can then explore the Royal Palace, which is the present day Museo Correr, which was once home to the Procurators, Venice's most honored dignitaries. It is the more modern of the three museums in St. Mark's Square, built during the time when Venice still fell under Napoleon's rule. The building is flanked by the Procuratie Nuove and Vechie buildings on each side, once the Royal Palace under Napoleon's rule, refurbished for the use of Empress Elisabeth of Austria, and that is the purpose it served until 1946. Now, visitors to the different Royal Palaces can learn about Venice's culture, history and present way of life, as your guidebook is sure to tell you.
