The package comes with a lot of museum entrances. I love the fact that it was a reasonably priced package to include skip the line and also a Gondola Ride. It was easy to pick up package, the lady helped explain everything perfectly. No fuss, no difficulty. Enjoyed our day. Thank you.
Note: When you get to building, there’s no store sign. Their business is in a building with others, so you have to press their button and they will ring you in.
