    100% worth. You have to pay for a ticket anyway if you want to go inside the palace, the square in front of it is free, but I will definitely go inside. For a few euros extra you can also skip the row which is great. It wasn't necessary for us but right after we got in there was already a long line, will take him just to be sure.

    My purchased program is only for the fast track entrance. However, the instruction misled me to think that there would be a staff to handle over the physical ticket to me again as per booking time. However, I was able to contact the live chat support and get the right instruction to proceed with the fast track ticket which was sent to my email. It would be better if the instruction would clearly be stated that we just go to the security check next to the normal ticket queuing and present the barcode ticket to the security to get in. It would be helpful if you would give the advice that after passing the secutiry, the audio rental is recommended at the additional cost of 5 Euro. It make my visit more enjoyable.

    It’s a good experience but take it with audio or a guided tour to understand the history better. It’s beautiful and a lot to walk and no photographs inside the rooms . Also recommended to buy the tickets earlier so you can skip a the queue and use that time to explore the palace.
