Just two quibbles - (1) we had to walk a little way to actually get the ticket to gain access. This was not made clear when purchasing the ticket. I thought by purchasing the ticket on line before we left England we could just go to the Doge's/The Basillica and enjoy the Experience. We bought this ticket as we thought it was good value that it gave access to both Doge's Palace and the Basillica. (2) Although there is free entry to The Basillica it is not made clear that there is an additional charge to access two places are of interest (a) The Burial Site of St Mark = 2 Euros (b) access to the roof terrace = 5 Euros. The additional charges are not made clear.
The Doge's palace is amazing! However, Skip-the -Line Entry ticket was not what I expected. I've had to leave to go back across the Piazza to find the kiosk, where I retreaved the ticket and the small guide book, which wasn't an exclusive guide book for the Doge's Palace, but a tiny guide book on Venice! Also, The price was much higher if you just queued to buy your ticket straight from the ticket office. Disappointed.
My experience was most good. I had difficultly locating the local partners to collect the tickets. I ended up been sent to 3 addresses with me bn able to pick up the tickets at the 3rd address. But overall my experience was good. I was able to skip the line at the dodge palace. I look forward to exploring venice more over the next 6 months
Thanks we were able to get into all the desired places. Transportation card was great. Only draw back was we could only go one time with each card into the main attractions. It was great anyway. Still had to stand in line for Basilica though - thought our passes could get us through. Thanks
Hard to find the office to check in, but you do get to walk some of Venice off the beaten track. Doge's Palace was very interesting. Skipped the Basilica due to crowds (this was Saturday). Still worth it - it's Venice, after all.
