This was a great short tour of Doge's palace! We got a lot of information on the political, art and architectural history of Venice while we toured the palace. We really liked having a small group tour!

Skipping the line in and of itself is worth the money! But Chiara was a great guide also. Covered A LOT in 2 hours. Tour was very informative on history and art and well presented. Despite the crowds, the Doges Palace is a MUST SEE in Venice.
