    Defenitly worth visiting. Just be prepared to still wait in a line. You get to skip the main entrance line which is radicously long but you still have to wait in a separate line. We was stood there for some time, about an hour, before we managed to get in.

    Unique cultural experience - no time wasted waiting in line!

    Magical museums (Doge's Palace, Correr, etc.) at a reasonable price and without wasting time waiting in line! An absolute must-have for those interested in culture! The large hall (53 x 25 m) with the largest mural (Tintoretto) in the world is unforgettable. Just let yourself work! If possible visit the prison and walk through the Bridge of Sighs! You feel transported to another time. Unforgettable!

    The day I went (July 23 around 4 p.m.), the skip-the-line ticket saved me a lot of time: the queue without tickets was long even though there was only a family in front of me when I got into the “ticketed” line, and we got in within 3 minutes.
