We were rushed through the gallery. Many different excursions to the gallery at one time! Also went to the cellars of the old Palace. More relaxed and enjoyable. Then went to Omis for lunch. Good experience!
Secret Venice Walking tour was the best - took us through the back streets of Venice. Did it in the am when it wasn't so crowded and hot. Afterwards, we walked Venice and had lunch on our own and didn't get lost once because of this excursion. Doge's Palace was good along with St.Mark's Square and the Basilica. I thought that the gondola ride was too short for the amount of money we paid.
