We bought the 2 hour tour of St Mark's Basilica and the Doges Palace. We got an excellent guide, Mose, that gave us a great experience. The skip the line advantage saved us many hours this day! Highly recommended.
Before going on this, leave your bags (even small backpacks) at the hotel since they are not allowed in the basilica.
Since we were so satisfied with the 2 hour tour we continued with a 1 hour boat tour in the evening. It was a very hot night and the only way to get some fresh air on the boat was standing up in the rear end of the boat, which made us not hear the guide. There was room inside to sit, but it was so hot there. The tour itself was good, but we didn´t get the value we wanted from it.More
