Venice Doge's Palace cruise excursion
Overall Rating
The Doge’s Palace, which for centuries was the seat of power for the Venetian Republic, is one of the top attractions in Venice for its impressive Gothic architecture.

We really enjoyed doing the Doge's Palace, the Bridge of Sighs and the prison on our own and at our own pace. every room was spectacular, and the large room was incredible. we also wandered about the streets and virtually got lost but just follow the crowds, they seem to know what they are doing. we also loved the music on St Marks Square, so unusual to see this outside restaurants

We booked our own tour of Doge's Palace and spent the day wandering around Venice. Despite the rain and hail we found it to be a charming city that we would one day like to return to and spend some more time on our own there.

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.

Bought ticket at Corer Museum on St Mark's square (interesting, not crowded), then skipped long, long line for Doge's Palace. Self tour at Doge's - there are signs in English explaining each of the rooms. Lots of history, architecture, and art.

Bought the tickets to the secret rooms ahead of time and that was worth it no long lines.
