This tour made our visit to Venice worthwhile. Our small group consisted of 16 people, but it was very manageable because our tour guide Luisella was fantastic and the sound system worked very well. Luisella is intelligent, humorous and dynamic. She brought the Doge's Palace to life in a way that appealed to all of us, including my 15 year old son. If you want to experience Venice in a way beyond its obvious beauty, take this in-depth tour of the Doge's Palace.

Guide arrived late. But her energy took what we saw and created a story/picture of what life was like when Venice was at its peak. That made the tour worthwhile and more than a tour of a building and paintings.
