Une guide parlant très vite, sans aucune interraction avec les visiteurs. Peu d'intérêt pour les enfants qui n'ont pu comprendre les explications. À ne surtout pas confondre avec la visite "les itinéraires secrets du Palais des Doges" qui est très bien pour toute la famille.

Dear Jocelyn good afternoon and I'm sorry for your review, as already written in the e-.mail the guide is always the same and is a very-professional-guide for many years. We never received any similar complaint. At disposal for further information you may need.
