What people are saying about Doge's Palace

Both sites are absolutely incredible! Basilica is a must see

My sister and I were expecting good things from this tour, but it was far far better than that! We easily found the meeting place. Everyone gets a headphone set so you can always hear your guide, and ours was called Rosanna. She was so lovely, upbeat, friendly, and funny. We did the Basilica first and we were lucky to be in there when it was illuminated and it was absolutely beautiful (it is usually only illuminated for mass and other than that for one hour a day). The Basilica also hosts an amazing artwork entirely made of gold and just under 2,000 jewels. This was information provided by Rosanna, and a lot of what made this tour good was all the facts she told us. It would not have been half as amazing without context. Then we did the Doges Palace where, as part of this tour, you actually walk inside and along the Bridge of Sighs, which we weren't expecting! Also the Doges Palace has the largest canvas artwork in the world, which was astounding to see. Two very happy customers!

Wonderful tour and excellent guide for Doge’s Palace and St Mark’s

The combination of Doge’s Palace and St Mark’s Basilica after hours made for a wonderful tour. It had started cooling off and there crowds had mostly left so we loved it. Our guide Pam was so good - she was very knowledgeable about Venetian history and these two historic places. And she was very charming. I highly recommend this tour. The walking is moderate and there are some stairs but not a lot. And the stairs were more half-flights at a time which made them easy to get past. And the views from Doge’s are magnificent. St Mark’s is breathtaking with the gold ceiling and we practically had the place to ourselves.

Incredibly informative tour providing valuable historical insights!

Our guide Francesca was fantastic. She offered wonderful insights into both the building histories as well as Venetian. She maneuvered our group of 20 seamlessly through Summer tourist crowds. I strongly recommend the earlier morning tours as the crowds in the square multiplied over our 3 hour tour.

Intensive overview of the 2 major buildings

What a fantastic way to get to know Venice! A little bit of an overload of knowledge and I was completely overtaken by the beauty of them to pay enough attention to what I was hearing. I could probably use another go at it to learn everything.

small group and great tour guide. no waiting time and great insights

very good tour and great to have a short technical break in between. tour guide was good informed and good speaking. it was a nice atmosphere and we learned a lot. She could also answer all our questions.
