Not to be missed Very beautiful palace I recommend Ci you can take with the pass the price is interesting because it includes the visit of 3 museums and several churches. Not all of them are free and you have to pay 3€ to visit them. This price remains expensive for those who do not have the pass because on some there are not exceptional things to see

Far cheaper than paying on the day, but only if you make the effort to see at least two of the museums covered by the pass. Loads to see if you’re interested in history and art, otherwise save your money for cichetti and wine in the many Bacraro’s - or for eye wateringly expensive tea and cake in Piazza San Marco

We visited the Doge's Palace and the Murano museum as a family. The tickets also allowed us to go off in smaller groups to other destinations. We had a great experience! The Doge's Palace was busy, but it was possible to see everything clearly.

Be sure to scout out where to exchange the vouchers! You can do it on the PIER of MARCO POLO AIRPORT, before getting on a boat to Venice island. Once you have the tickets, the experience is wonderful.

Easy to purchase, place to exchange voucher close by, skipped the lines, included many attractions, excellent deal.
