Enjoyable experience, was easy to book on line, however a paper ticket was required.
Very good with a good explanation of how glass of ma but a bit short.
Very interesting and fun. The kids did not complain and listened with interest to our guide. I found it expensive at first but I appreciated very much to skip the waiting line!
Wonderful tour and very good guide, It was well explained.
After having seen the queues all day and every day to get into the Palace, I was so pleased I purchased the skip the queue tickets. We were allowed straight in before the proper gates opened. Our guide was brilliant and very informative and helpful.
We were 6 people in the boat but it did not matter much. The ride was still great. The 1 star off was (as expected) a bit touristic and we met with quite a bunch. But sure that is a bit where the magic went off, but then again. Going for a gondola ride in july.... We had expected it! I can surely advise this for others! Price was nice for 2, I'm not sure it's worth it if you are 3 or more though :/
When you say, “Venice Museums,” I say, “Venice Museum Pass.” Naturally, you hit back with, “Is the Venice Museum Pass worth it?” So, of course, I come back with “Uh, duh...forget buying individual Venice museum tickets, ain’t nobody got time for that. The future is now and you can hook yourself up online. And, you know what that means right? No lines. That’s what that means. On the real, a Venice pass is the way to go. I then go on to explain at great length how not waiting in lines means that you could maximize a Venice day tour. Frankly, my argument is very compelling. But, it’s a lot of information to take on board. Also, I recognize the necessity to let you turn it over in your mind.
So, I leave you to mull it over. And, while you do I prattle on about some of the best museums you could go and check out with your Venice visitors pass.
To come clean, the Venice Museum Pass doesn’t include the Gallerie dell'Accademia. Though, with 11 others to check out it feels like a small sacrifice. Besides, you can always nab a couple separate, additional skip the queue tickets for that. What a Venice tourist pass does include though, is access to one of Venice’s main attractions, the Doge’s Palace. Walk the halls and rooms of the Palace where the leaders of the Venetian republic used to live. The rooms are pretty spectacular, with lavishly carved ceilings and impressive artworks hanging from the walls.
The Ca ‘Rezzonico sits on the Grand Canal. Behind its white marble facade is a museum dedicated to 18th-century Venice. Here, you can explore three floors of artworks from leading Venetian painters of the time. Make a point of checking out the Pietro Longhi Salon. This room boasts excellent views of the canal. It also hosts a series of works by Longhi that explore daily Venetian life in the 18th century, from carnival to the reserved lives of the nobility.
If you’re after something a little different then you should head to the Murano Glass Museum or the Burano Lace Museum. Located in the palace of Podestà of Torcello on Venice’s Burano island, the Lace museum offers a complete overview of the history of Venetian lace. The Murano Glass Museum also found on Burano island, celebrates all things glass. Travel from room to room tracing the origins of glassmaking through to its golden age and finish up in a space that rotates spectacular glass exhibitions.
