Doge’s Palace is definitely a place to visit. If you’re looking for a quick ride around the block experience on the Gondola to say I did it, this will be it.

All was exactly as expected. Dodges palace was beautiful. The gondola ride nice but gondolier not very friendly.

It's an easy way to not spend to much while travelling.
I was in Venice just for a weekend and this experience was the perfect combination for earning some time skipping the lines in lots of busy places of Venice.
