Overview
Guarantee your entry into two of Venice’s star attractions on a skip-the-line tour of Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale) and St. Mark’s Basilica (Basilica of San Marco). Save hours of waiting in line as you bypass queues often in advance of two hours and head straight inside the often sold-out monuments. Discover details you may have otherwise missed, and enjoy special access to the first-floor terrace of St. Mark’s Basilica for panoramic views of Venice.
What to Expect

Greet your guide in central Venice and head straight to your first stop, St. Mark’s Basilica (Basilica de San Marco) to bypass the long lines often in excess of two hours. Inside your guide reveals hidden details and leads you to the first-floor terrace not usually open to the general public.

The next stop is Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), where skip-the-line tickets allow you to avoid waiting in line once again. Visit the opulent Hall of Great Council, home to frescoes by the likes of Veronese and Tintoretto, and discover the palace’s dark history in the Armory and New Prisons.

Your tour culminates with a walk across the Bridge of Sighs, where you bid your guide farewell.

Great tour guide

Well worth buying skip the line tickets as you go straight into each place. I think the tour guide makes the experience. I had Gina who was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. Good value for money.

Excellent tour and guide
