The beauty of its Gothic buildings and romance of its canals are just a few of the ways Venice charms travelers. However, its hype can often lead to crowds, especially in summer. Here’s how to make the most of your time in Venice with a skip-the-line tour.

Skip the Line at Doge’s Palace
Doge’s Palace, set inside St. Mark’s Square, was once the center of political life in ancient Venice. Today, hundreds gather to see the ornate interior and to walk the same Bridge of Sighs that prisoners walked for centuries. To avoid lines that often stretch around the square, opt for a guided tour of the palace that includes skip-the-line privileges.

Skip the Line at St. Mark’s Basilica
Because of its setting in St. Mark’s Square, St. Mark’s Basilica is often combined with a tour of Doge’s Palace. You can skip the line at both attractions by booking a guided tour with fast-track entry or visit on an after-hours tour as another way to escape the crowds. Tour the crypt below the church, admire the famous mosaics, and experience the basilica’s golden magic without spending hours in line.

Skip the Line Combo Tours
While most tours of St. Mark’s Basilica are combined with Doge’s Palace, you can also combine skip-the-line tours to these two attractions with a walking tour, a gondola ride, or a cruise down the Grand Canal. Experience vintage Venice and make the most of your time in the city by waltzing right into its most visited sights without a wait.
