“Beautiful church!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2016

The church is amazing inside. The mosaics are just stunning. We saw the treasure exhibit, but not the museum. There are separate charges for those two attractions inside the church. So worth 2 euro to skip the line.

“Ease in transportation options from airport to water service (bus to ACTV)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2016

The one detail that took time to lock into was the actual transportation from the Venice airport to our apartment at the San Stae station. There are numerous sites and transportation services available with all levels of pricing. Confusing! So, we finally found this site and our options were narrowed down with ease. Taking the local bus to P. Roma and then a water transport pass(ACTV) with a 24 hour timeline was the best arrangement and price. Ordering online just a day prior to our flight to Venice was a savings and ease in initiating - just punch in the number code into the vendor machine right at the airport vendor machine (located outside arrival area where buses are parked).

Speed of entry, the basilica amazing, the bag drop off very helpful. The roof views(paid 5 euros extra at site well worth it) fantastic.

“Such a beautiful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2016

I ordered the skip the line passes online a few weeks before our trip to Venice. It was easy to find the skip the line entry door with the instructions given on the voucher. It was only $3 for the skip the line tickets, but one thing I didn't know when I ordered was there would be extra costs once inside the Basilica if you want to get to other parts of the church and museum. Let me just say it was worth the extra $5 to get upstairs to the museum and get a view off the roof balcony of the Basilica. There was another area we didn't pay the extra money to get into, so I can't say if that area is nice, but I bet it is. Very good experience. Such a beautiful place.

Dear Kala W,

thank you for your kind review! We would only like to clarify that the optional tickets to pay inside St. Mark’s Basilica are indicated online, in the ‘Important Information’ section of the Basilica's page on venetoinside.com. Actually, these tickets are managed directly by the Procuratoria di San Marco and can be purchased only on the spot… But we are transparent in notifying our customers that they will have to pay extra money if they wish to visit the Golden Pall, St. Mark’s Museum and the Treasury!

Kind regards,
The venetoinside.com staff

“Don't wait in long line!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2016

Bought these skip the line tickets on my phone for entry to St Mark's Basilica. We arrived earlier than chosen time but were still able to walk right in. Bar code is sent to your phone so no tickets to worry about. Our wait time was 0, regular line to get in must have had 50 or 60 people waiting. Best $2 pp I spent while we were there. Highly recommend.

Dear WDWfan81,

thank you for your review! We would like to take this opportunity to remind our customers that reservations must be used on the slot time booked to avoid delays or problems that might prejudice the visits of other tourists who are waiting to enter the Basilica at the time they actually booked.

Kind regards,
The venetoinside.com staff
