We had an excellent tour with Elisabetta. She was energetic and very knowledgable. She didn't just give us facts but had great stories so we could really understand the history behind this place and Venice. I highly recommend booking a tour with her - because of her we got so much more out of this visit to the Doge's palace.

If you have time it’s worth visiting. The artworks are mostly on the ceilings and very impressive. However there was no queue when I was there.

We just purchased tickets and the audio guide. It was enough information for our family. Highly recommend!

Booking very easy skip the line saved us alot of time queueing would highly reccomend.

Saved lots of time as we did not have to queue outside tickets. An amazing place.
