    The Doge's Palace is on every must see list for Venice and after visiting recently I can see why. Joined the long queue as soon as we arrived there, we had decided not to pre-book so we were at least 45 minutes waiting but it was shaded and the queue moved along steadily.

    We purchased a family ticket. Audio guides are also available at an extra 5 euro, but make sure to bring a form of ID on the day. You also get issued a ticket for the Correr museum included in the price, so if you get to do both it's worth the price.

    Once you leave the busy queue behind, it opens up into a lovely courtyard, on to the interior up the stairs into the main building, it is really quite breathtaking, the grandeur and scale is amazing. Most of your time will be spent staring up at the amazing artwork and ornate frames.

    On to the the bridge of sighs, catching a glimpse of the view and on through to the prisons. It was a very enjoyable and interesting visit, easy to spend a few hours here so we were glad to see a cafe at the end which was very nice also.

    Overall the Palace is well worth a visit, so if in Venice do make time to visit, we had no fixed itinerary for our trip but we were so delighted that we were able to visit.

    This is one of those marvels in the world where you just have to go see for yourself. It’s just indescribably awesome. The leve of detail, the wealth of detail and materials employed, the extraordinary floors…. Just whatever you do, if you’re anywhere near the vecinity of Venice, do not miss this marvel.

    A must visit famous place which has so much to see which includes the Basilica, Doges Palace , Bell tower,and plenty of cafes and restaurants.
    Lovely place to visit with amazing architecture and buildings but can get very busy.
    Can be expensive if you sit at the cafes with the pianos playingetc as you are charged for the privilege.
    A must visit place.

    We bought tickets ahead of time from their web sight. We saw la Boheme. It's a gorgeous opera house well worth a visit. I would recommend to buy the tíquets in Venice and not on line the tiquetes were cheaper at the tíquet office.

    So much fun to see both the standard and limited exhibition. Also nice café and gift shop. You can leave your bag in a locker at the start and are allowed to take photos.

    Canareggio is an oasis in the midst of the hustle and bustle of tourists. Although there are fewer tourists. A very friendly neighborhood, still inhabited by true Venetians. Beautiful and quiet squares, streets and canals. Don't miss a walk along the Fondamentas with several options for eat or simply drink a coffee or an aperitif. Inside, don't miss the Jewish Ghetto. Very interesting

    Across the canal, just a short Vaporetto ride from St. Mark's is this church. The inside of the church is nice, though by the time we saw it we were about churched out . The real jewel is the bell tower, which has an elevator and gives you great views of St. Mark's Square and all of Venice (obviously the further away the less detail).

    Excellent location - not so many tourist - not so crowded. Most are locals and students. It has great hidden gem restaurants and shops.

    The largest church in Venice. It is located in the Campo dei Frari in the San Polo district. It contains many works of art, including two paintings by Titian, the graves of the Venetian Doges and Titian himself. It is the only church that has preserved a walled choir. Flash photography is not allowed. Sightseeing takes about an hour. Highly recommended.

    Elegant bridge which is one of the focal points of Venice.Make sure you walk up both sides of the bridge and visit the shops. Very very busy with people taking photos all day long.

    There are no words to express the beauty of this place. Overwhelming. So glad I got to go in my last day in Venice (earlier they were filming a movie there).

    If you are after fantastic views of the Grand Canal, then head here. Sitting high above the Rialto Bridge the T Fondaco dei Tedeschi rooftop provides fantastic views in a much more laid back atmosphere than down below.
    The great thing is that it is free. You do need to pre-book, you get 15 minutes viewing time which is plenty and they only allow limited numbers at any one time so there are no crowds to contend with.

    We found this quaint and interesting. It was busy but we slowly meandered thru in 15 minutes or so without waiting in any line.
