Health and safety measures are in place so you can enjoy culture with confidence.



  • Skip the long waiting times in ticket lines and explore two of Venice's most iconic landmarks using a handy audio guide
  • Get starry-eyed in St. Mark's Basilica, with its stunning Pala d'Oro altar table, encrusted with 2,486 precious gemstones
  • Admire royal life at the Doge's Palace and see paintings by Titian, Veronese, Tiepolo, Tintoretto, and other masters


It's hard to pick out only two highlights in a city like Venice, but if you're pressed for time, there are two cultural treasures you definitely don't want to miss: St. Mark's Basilica and the spectacular Doge's Palace.

Skip the long lines and explore each of these Venetian wonders at your own pace, while an immersive downloadable audio guide weaves a tapestry of fascinating historical context with every step around St. Mark's Square.

Waltz past the long, grumbling ticket queues at St. Mark's Basilica and prepare to be awestruck. Every bit as magnificent inside as its ornate facade promises, St. Mark's Basilica is 4,000 square meters of glittering mosaics, frescoes, sculptures, breathtaking domes, and one very fancy altar!

After wandering around and getting sufficiently googly-eyed at the opulence of St. Mark's, you'll have to dust yourself off and get ready for round two. The extravagance continues at the Doge's Palace. Even Napoleon was impressed by this grandiose Gothic crib.

Inside, the sense of history is palpable. Your audio guide will keep your brain busy with tales of the palace's past, while your eyes are free to soak up the sheer spectacle of each jaw-dropping room, or artworks by the likes of Titian, Veronese, Tiepolo, and Tintoretto.

With your ticket, also access the Museo Correr, National Archaeological Museum Venice, and the Monumental Rooms of the Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana, all located around St. Mark's Square.
