With a coupon issued by getyourguide you have to go to a travel agency where, after queuing, you receive the reservation which is converted into a ticket (after queuing) at the ticket office of the Palazzo Cantarini del Bovolo. The tower, easy to access even for children, offers a breathtaking view of Venice!

The palazzo is very photogenic and the view from the top is nice. For that 5 stars. 1 star deduction, because with the e-ticket booked via 'get your guide' you do not come directly to the palazzo, but first have to go to another point for 2 minutes to exchange it and then have to go back to the ticket office in the palazzo, where it will be edited one more time. Since there was nothing going on at the palazzo, a direct ticket purchase in the palazzo would have required less effort.

Nice view!

Original structure that offers a beautiful panorama of the city! It is little known by tourists, I think it is the only attraction where we have not found a queue The flaw is that the voucher is to be converted not on site but in a nearby square, so not knowing it we had to go back and forth 2 times! Overall it is worth a quick visit, although the price (7 €) is a bit high in my opinion
