Best Time to Visit The Doge's Palace

The Doge's Palace is one of the most popular destinations amongst tourists and you'll always find the place considerably crowded. To avoid waiting in line for your turn or being pushed around by the excessive crowd, we would recommend you avoid visiting the palace during public holidays and weekends since both tourists and the locals make their way to the Doge's Palace on those days. On weekdays, we would recommend that you visit the palace either early in the morning at around 9:00 AM or between 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM when most people have gone for lunch. In terms of time of the year, try planning your trip in low tourist seasons like December, January or February. March to May and September to November are also decent in terms of tourist influx.
