Historic Venice: Doge's Palace, St. Mark's Basilica guided tour & Gondola ride
"All 3 parts of this tour were unique and a wonderful experience. Our guide for St.Marks and the Doges Palace was thorough and informative and for me, most considerate that I couldn't claim a great deal of stairs, so made arrangements for me to use a lift to the top of the Palace so I wouldn't miss anything. Otherwise I would have missed the prisons and the view of the Bridge of Sighs from a unique perspective. The only thing was waiting for 3 hrs for the gondola ride after the 2 parts of the tour ended. Had it not been close to my hotel room, I probably wouldn't have walked back 3 hrs later. BUT, the meeting point was close, thank goodness, plus the young gal, I want to say her name was Alexia or Alexis was so sweet. Since I was the only solo guest, she took me under her wing and made sure my experience was fulfilled."..."
