one? Do the museums require reservations like they do in Rome and Florence?
You can buy a Venice Connected pass on line which is basically a travel pass but can include Museums etc, it is the cheapest way to buy, discounted as to buying in Venice
You ask "Do the museums require reservations like they do in Rome and Florence?". There can be queues for the Accademia in the middle of the morning or afternoon but I have never found queues early in the morning when they open - 8.15 a.m every day of the week. Again other museums such as the Correr, Ca'Rezzonico, the Peggy Guggenheim etc I have never found so busy as to need to queue.
It is over 20 years since I last went to the Basilica of San Marco so I cannot comment on queues for there.
Whether the museum pass is worth it depends on how many of the museums you plan on visiting that are included in the pass. Sometmes it's better to just pay as you go.
If you want to do the Secret Itinerary tour of the Doges Palace, you do have to make a reservation - this is the website: www.museiciviciveneziani.it/frame.asp…
Beginning in April, the reservation system for St. Marks Basilica will be available and although it's not required it may save you from standing in a long time - website: venetoinside.com/en/basilica_of_san_marco/
Not sure how long your visit is but I do consider the vaporetto pass worth getting online before you arrive.Edited: 08 February 2010, 03:20
