  • Beautiful Renaissance building of ' 500. the façade contrasts with the Doge's creating a magnificent access to the sea of St Mark's Square. Display rooms impress with their spaciousness and elegance of decoration that furniture. Contains valuable antique books. Is one of the largest in Italy. It remains a symbol of the greatness of the Serenissima.

  • The Biblioteca Marciana in Venice is something that goes beyond any kind of expectation. Designed by Sansovino, a modern building, but designed in the 500. Beautiful Globes, the halls, the grand staircase. Everyone should go there at least once in their lifetime, farther than just a few metres from Venice consumerist and empty.

  • We went back today on the occasion of the interesting exhibition on Gioseffo Zarlino, partly for the cognoscenti but the place is so nice for everything (Veronese, Tintoretto, Schiavone, Salviati, etc. ..). Salon and Vestibule are from just a couple of hours. The combined ticket which includes Palazzo Ducale, Museo Correr, Museo Archeologico and Marciana Library though ... why not give a chance to those who are only interested in exhibitions held in the Hall of the library you can access without having to pay for the other places? Because every time I have to be ' forced ' to buy a combined ticket. 20 euros have a minimal cost if compared to 4 places mentioned but I can't see them 2-3 times a year just because I would like to see the exhibition. I've left a couple of hours but most people after 10 minutes had already passed to the Museo Correr. 6 visits to Palazzo Ducale and the Correr in recent years are sufficient, 5 though there be surprised every time. There is the staff that checks, why not design a path only for those who would like to see only the temporary exhibition staged in the lounge?

  • Was allowed to just walk around an enjoy. Not many people were there when I went. Great history there. Gorgeous
  • Staff's professionalism below zero. They are rude and incompetent. If it were up to me, they would all be fired tomorrow. They work in one of the most beautiful library in the world and have no passion for their job at all! Goodbye Marciana. // La professionalità del personale non esiste. Sono sgarbati e incompetenti. Se dipendesse da me, sarebbero tutti licenziati domani. Lavorano in una delle biblioteche più belle del mondo e non hanno la minima passione per quel che fanno!
  • This place is gorgeous! Its definitely a good place to site see and take pictures! If you have to go here everyday, it does get old. For just a visit, definitely have to check it out at least once.
  • Nice and very central with a rather suggestive atmosphere!
  • Very nice
