Visited the Doge's Palace in St Marco Square today. Admission price was 16 euros pp (or 8 euros for seniors).
We got there early and avoided having to line up with the big crowds.
My travelling companion needs some assistance walking and the staff at the Palace could not have been more helpful. We got quickly ushered through strange doors with a guide and taken up to the top floor of the Palace in the elevator - which meant there was pretty much only walking downstairs for my friend.
The wow factor of this place should make it a must see for any visitor to Venice. Its over 1000 years old, you will spend half your visit looking up so you may end up with a crick in your neck - but the sights you will see are brilliant. Paintings, and frescos on almost every surface, gold leaf, rich colours, tapestry wall hangings, statues...it's all there and there is a great audio guide you can follow. There are also descriptions of each room (item) so you can do without the audio guide (or guide tour options) if you want and just read the signs yourself. (this is especially good if you are pressed for time).
The best part of this visit is that you can walk through the inside of the Bridge of Sighs (as part of the prison catacombs) walk through. Pretty exciting to be on the inside of one of the most photographed sites on Venice.
Totally recommend. Guaranteed you cannot take a bad photograph of this place. And the memories will last a lifetime.
