Extraordinary visit to do absolutely, remember to withdraw your vouchers at the kiosk which is at the very end of Saint Mark's Square at the level of the arcades before presenting yourself at the entrance. Avoid a long queue for at least 1h30 thanks to wire cutters and most of all the audioguides.

The visit to the Basilica of San Marco in Venice is unmissable, the entrance to Pala d'Or and the Lodge of the Horses, beautiful. The view from the dome is spectacular. It is better to visit with a guide than with an audio guide, but it is still a wonderful visit.

The visit we had chosen did not cover the visit to the choir and the museum - we had to pay for these 2 visits in addition, so plan them at the start of the reservation because it is a shame not to do them - we recommend the total visit
