Venice museums - advance booking

by shunra

Hello everybody,

my wife and I will spend two days and a half in Venice in the end of september. We are planning to visit three museums: the Palazzo ducale, the San Marco and the Accademia.
My question is whether we should book the tickets in advance? Is this really necessary? Will we have to queue too long otherwise?

Thanks in advance!

As far as I know it is advisable to pre book your ticket for the Ducal Palace. Otherwise you'll have to stand in a long queue.

Hi! I would also recommend booking in advance for the Palazzo Ducale, I was there in May and the line was pretty long. We didn't have to wait because we had a museum pass, but if you only plan on seeing the Palazzo Ducale it wouldn't be worth your while to buy one. Also, if you want to go on the secret itineraries tour (, you must book in advance.

There was no line at the Accademia so I don't think you need to worry about that one. For the San Marco Basilica, the trick is to drop your backpack (or whatever you might be carrying) at the off-site coat check (it's located on a little side street, I believe it's called "Spadaria"). It's free, and when you do so they give you a pass that allows you to skip the line :o)

Travel Tips for Venice

Shopping for crystal in Murano

by anjanag

Murano & it's glass creative factories r a must but don't shop there - after seeing the factories, go off to the marketplaces in Murano to pick up the same items at MUCH lower prices. Burano is also well wotrh a visit for all the beautiful hand lace & embroidery. It is utterly beautiful from end to end - the Rialto is so buzzing - the atmosphere is always festive!

Take a gondola trip through...

by simondavies7

Take a gondola trip through town. It may be a bit pricey but its not every day you are in Venice. Its a nice way to chill out for a while and its awesome as you pull out onto the Grand Canal.

~ Basilici di San Marco ~

by Carnation

There were once 3 enormous columns, plundered from Constantinople and erected here in 1172. One eventually toppled into the canal and was never seen again. Criminals were executed between the 2 remaining columns right up to the 18th century and because of this history, some Venetians, out of superstition will not walk between them.

St.Theodore, a crocodile-like-dragon, was the patron saint of Venice before St-Mark's relics came to the city in 828. The winged lion Marcus is now the city's symbol, possibly a sculpture from Assyria dating back to 5th century BC.

This page I want to take you on a photo tour through Venice. Venice is a city you have to feel, you have to see, and absorb, before you understand its beauty. I cannot give you all that on my travel page, but I try to give you a little bit of how I felt while I was in Venice.

So please come and walk with me through Venice.... mmmmmm, or should I say 'get lost in Venice'. Because that is what you should do. Throw away the map you've got, and just start walking. Stroll through the little street, soaking in the sights, the old houses, canals, boats, sounds, and oh so beautiful squares.... Sometimes you get into a dead end street, but don't worry, and just turn back and take another little street, and be surprised again what beauty lies around the next corner. And don't worry for not finding the way back at the end of the day; because somehow, you will always find your way back.

You must wear a top...

by mapakettle

Did you know you could be fined for going 'topless' in Venice, male or female.

Aside from obvious reasons, I think this is a good thing. There aren't many sights as distasteful as seeing Pa Kettle without a shirt. Wouldn't want you to lose your lunch while eating a slice of pizza... heaven forbid I might become part of a group photo in St. Marks Square.
