I bought the Skip The Line tickets for St. Mark's Basilica a couple of months in advance because Venice is so busy in the summer. It was well worth it! The regular line for entry snaked around forever! We walked right in and had a...More

You simply should not under any circumstances visit St. Mark's Basilica without skipping the line. Some people legitimately wait outside for 45 minutes just to be in the basilica for 10 min. Inside the basilica, there are black retractable belt barriers that keep the crowd...More

Your Venis trip is not complete unless you visit Doge's Palace. It's surreal, the bridge of sighs and the jail cells is worth the trip. Our guide was very good, she was very knowledgeable, courteous with a sense of humour Glad we took this tour

We walked right in with no wait at 2 p.m. with our skip the line pass. The church is beautiful, and we enjoyed all of the activity at St. Mark's Square. Very reasonable price to avoid the line in the heat.

The sites on this tour are amazing and absolutely wouldn't miss seeing them. The Doge's palace was beautiful and the cathedral was amazing, however, I was disappointed by the tour's organisation and the guide and so I don't think this particular tour was worth the...More

Dear deaniw, thank you for your feedback! Regarding your suggestions about the end of the tour, please consider that the guide concludes the explanations outside the Basilica because nobody can stop inside... Being St. Mark's Basilica one of the most visited attractions in Venice, the...More

Like most of the attractions in St. Marks Square, the queues are enormous and this “on-line” “skip the queue” ticket is a blessing. Entry times are strict so watch out. There can be no doubt about the impressive scale of this building and it is...More
