The people at the place we had to go to get our tickets were very efficient and helpful, and it was certainly nice to not have to wait in the long line. The audio guide was also fun, as it pointed out things that you wouldn't realize have as much significance as they do, such as the marble columns.

Magnificent visit, this ticket allows you to avoid the wait outside which seemed very long. On the other hand, this ticket does not give you full access to the Basilica, very disappointed to have to pay more to go up and see the hotel in gold, it is a bit absurd ... otherwise the place is obviously splendid and a must to visit see in Venice

Definitely the thing not to miss in Venice!! Magnificent basilica, but on the other hand be careful, planned 5€ more per person if you want to access the pala d'oro (which is really worth it, you will not be disappointed), then 7€ per person if you want to visit the St. Mark's Museum. The tickets are to be collected not far from the square, the description indicates very well the path to take. We got a free Venice guide book when we went to pick up our tickets. I recommend, the staff very welcoming and friendly
