I first visited this place 10 years ago when they had the same arrangement: 3 museums in 1 and as we bought our tickets online via VisitMuve we only had to scan the barcode to get in. The only complaint about his place is that...More
The library is included in the Doge's Palace ticket along with two other museums and is adjacent to one of them. There's not much to see, you just go with the flow.More
Our Monumental rooms are housed in two halls: the Vestibule, or Antechamber, and the Hall which was the former seat of the Public Library (or St. Mark's Library). Both halls are the work of Jacopo Sansovino, who built the library between 1537 and 1553. The...More
