The ticket gave us access to the Palazzo, the Bridge of Sighs and the prison to view at our own pace and this was what we wanted. We did pick up an audio guide for €5 within the palace but unfortunately the battery on the device ran out halfway through so they gave us our money back. The guide book provided with the ticket was a generic book on the area, not just the Palazzo, but nevertheless it is a good guide providing lots of lovely photos and information that we used to help us during our stay in Venice.

Just follow the meeting point in Google maps and it will bring you right to their newspaper stand (read their detailed description on how to find them). Don’t forget to download the audio guide in advance (either before or the stand has some wifi and a QR code to download) and bring headphones to listen with it. So far, in Italy, most audio guides are done by listening to a cheap phone/device placed beside your ear but having it on your own device /w headphones is much better.

The Doge's palace is amazing! However, Skip-the -Line Entry ticket was not what I expected. I've had to leave to go back across the Piazza to find the kiosk, where I retreaved the ticket and the small guide book, which wasn't an exclusive guide book for the Doge's Palace, but a tiny guide book on Venice! Also, The price was much higher if you just queued to buy your ticket straight from the ticket office. Disappointed.

The booking was easy and uncomplicated, but the lady at the kiosk, who had to exchange the voucher for the ticket, was very unfriendly and impolite. She had no idea and it took forever. Luckily we had planned a little more time and nothing was going on yet. Suggestion: it's better to provide the ticket directly. Otherwise it was definitely worth standing in line just 5m instead of 500m.

Lots of signs in each room in different languages give history of the room and artwork. They block off specific pathway through the palace so it is easy to flow through in one direction so as not to get lost or miss anything. There were people with an app on their phone to use as audio guide but you have to download it where there’s wifi. We were happy reading the signs.

priority entrance could save you HOURS of queuing! we showed up early fearing we would have to queue for a while and instead we went right in! even without a guide if you use the book they give you and read the explanations placed on the spot, you can enjoy the place independently, stopping more where something particularly strikes you.

Simply exchange the voucher for the tickets at the kiosk beforehand (very easy to find!) and join the much shorter queue at the Doge's Palace (wear a mask, no problem), wait a moment, take your temperature at the entrance and off you go. Great visit, impressed!! It's worth it

This was a great way to skip the line last-minute. The ticket exchange point is on the other side of the plaza through the corridor that passes the Correr museum entrance, FYI, so go early to get your voucher swapped because you’ll have to walk the length of the plaza after

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.
