We had the guided tour and it was very interesting. I didn’t realise how big and amazing the palace would be so I am very pleased we decided to visit. I would highly recommend this place

The secret itinerary tour was full of loads of great information. Suited a family with teenage children. Was fine even in 28 degree heat. Could explore at own pace after but got to see places you couldn't otherwise get to.

We walked by after a food and wine tour. The door was open and there was no line. It was so beautiful. I didn't think we were going to be able to get in.

This was part of an afternoon tour that we took. The tour allowed us to skip the line which was very large. Some beautiful paintings including the largest oil painting in the world. Ceilings were outstanding, it seemed gold was everywhere. Overlooking St Mark’s Square,...More

Doge's Palace is a beautiful place to visit. The tour takes you through many rooms with fantastic art, decorations and furniture. Highly recommend getting a Skip the Line pass as this is a very popular attraction.

We visited Doge's Palace along with the Basilica and both were worth visiting because we purchased a tour that allowed us to minimize the line waiting times. I would personally not recommend a guided tour for either place, but that is just our personal preference....More

I don’t want to misinform you. If it’s not explicitly stated that you have skip-the-line access, I’d assume you don’t. The lines were interminable and you’re in the searing hot sun. I’d confirm before I go.

A previous poster suggested you book the Secret Itineraries tour which is what we did also. That way you get to see more of the palace that is not otherwise open to visitors. And when you are finished you just stay in the... More
