The guide is a really nice and interesting addition to the visit. Lara had a lot of knowledge which she shared with great enthusiasm and humor. Questions from us were also answered nicely and well. In the 2 hours you see the entire palace and Lara is not silent for a moment, so as a visitor you get a lot of interesting information! Highly recommended!

We had a great and exciting tour with Gabriella. She was very personable and took the time to answer any questions. In the end we were on the road for 2.5 hours instead of the booked 2 hours - even though we were only 2 guests. An incredible experience and highly recommended.

Our tour guide Susy was so knowledgeable and full of interesting facts about the Doge Palace, really enjoyed learning about its history. Susy was also so very kind to my Mum who needed assistance with the chair lift, really appreciated her care.
