Currently, the entrance for visitors is the ‘Porta del Frumento’, on the side of the San Marco Lagoon.

You can visit the palace by beginning on the ground floor with the Museo dell 'Opera, to then pass through the courtyard and go up to the first floor with the precious rooms of the Doge’s Apartments and then Institutional rooms between the second floor and the floor of the Loggias.
