It was a little confusing figuring out how to get the tickets but we called and they were very responsive, even to the point of coming to meet us to ensure we had what we needed.

A DIY visit to the Doge's Palace

Sometimes listening to a tour guide tell you all about a place can be boring so we decided to explore for ourselves. There are plenty of signs/boards around with the key facts for each area and the book provided was useful. We could spend as little/much time as we liked in each area and if you decide on the day you want a headset it's an additional 5 euros. I read negative comments about picking up the tickets but we didn't have any trouble with that - you want to explore the city anyway so it wasn't a hardship. Really interesting with lots of art and photo opportunities.

Just amazing

Even though it looks big from the outside I never thought it would be so big. Once you enter the different prison areas you start getting the feeling of what the prisoners must have felt and you get to a point were it turns even spooky. We had a great time visiting this Palace and seeing the contrast of what was happening in the opulence upstairs and the dungeons downstairs

Great chance to look round Doge's Palace at your own pace.

Interesting look around Doge's Palace and the Bridge of Sighs. Enjoyed the skip the line, it saved us a lot of time standing in a queue. We liked looking round at our own speed and not in a tour. Guidebook was very useful as it had information not only on Doge's Palace but on other attractions in Venice.

The pickup tickets were too far from the Doge Museum. It was better to fall in line to purchase tickets rather than looking where to pick up the tickets.

Sehr guter Preis und sogar eine dicke Broschüre über Venedig dazu, Den Kiosk für die Abholung der Tickets mussten wir etwas suchen. Trotzdem ist Viator auf jeden Fall weiterzuempfehlen.
