    It took us 1 hour and 3 people who kindly gave us information to find the place where you are, the map is useless, as well as the street number, to review and improve for the next bookers. in a word, we lost more than an hour in the afternoon

    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.

    Excellent landmark

    Really enjoyed the visit to this location and having the tickets avoided queuing but it took forever to locate the office where we had to collect the tickets which was really annoying, we were fortunate that we had enough time but for people that were time limited this would be a problem.
