Doge's Palace & St. Mark's Basilica with Terrace Access Tour
- Skip the ticket line
- Duration: 3 hours
This is an excellent tour to have an overall introduction to Murano, Burano, and Torcello, without diving too deep into the details of each island. Perfect if you have never visited them and want to get an idea, less suitable if you want to gain in-depth knowledge about them. We were a small group, so the company booked a taxi, which was an absolute treat. Great first time to the Lagoon Islands, our favourite was Burano (we got covid masks with handmade lace! So stylish). Live demonstrations of glass blowing and lace making are included. The guide was approachable and knowledgeable, keeping us on time without making us feel rushed.
Stefano is a terrific guide! He explained the history and architecture relating to St. Mark’s Bacilica and Doge’s Palace in an easy to understand manner and with a strong knowledge foundation. His background as an architect added another positive dimension. The 3 hour tour went quickly. We highly recommend taking it.
This tour is a definite recommendation, a must-do for everyone interested in Venice's history. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly, with an in-depth response for everyone extra question we had and brought across the information in a way that was engaging and fun to listen to.
TOP TOP TOP EXPERIENCE! I spend such a grate hour with the guide! The itineray is interesting and with many things about the Venice Republic and its ancient police! I repeat: TOP TOP TOP EXPERIENCE!
The trip is well organized and the guide is telling a lot about the history etc and makes it all an animated trip. There is enough time to explore the islands and all together it’s very pleasant.
