We picked up the tickets for the museums and the Doge's Palace without any problems and then came in with them everywhere. Unfortunately, as described, there was no real map with marked walking tours but only a map with the districts.

The guide for the gondola tour was knowledgeable and helpful. Correr Museum and Doge's Palace are worth a visit. With the prepaid ticket you skip the line and it's a nice added value

Doge's Palace great, gondola ride did not take place due to rain

Doge's Palace great, without queuing, gondola ride did not take place, because of heavy rain, nobody came ..., but then communicated on the Internet and returned money without problems

It was a nice experience.

For the autonomous tour it would be better to have a complete and detailed guide. The gondola ride is organized well.
