I don't give it 5 stars for a couple of reasons. The visit itself is a great pleasure, just to climb the stairs and contemplate the views is worth it. Perhaps the price is somewhat high because outside the stairs there is no room open except for one of temporary exhibitions. The other reason is that perhaps the visit could be improved by opening more rooms or lowering the price somewhat. But I repeat, the visit is of great pleasure and worth it

The tower is a bit hidden, so not quite as crowded and the view is fantastic. There is even a small art exhibition where a real Tintoretto can be viewed. The on-site team will answer questions about the history of the palazzo and the tower! Definitely recommended if you want to take a different look at Venice!

Wonderful building with stunning view. Unfortunately we had to wait for more than 30 minutes because of the private tour. Nobody told us that we cannot go in until somebody called the guy from the entrance and asked him. We had to stay in the rain for 15 minutes and then wait another 30 minutes. But it was amazing at the end.
