What people are saying about Punta Sabbioni

Had to queue for two hours outside and too crowded inside.

Sadly our general admission ticket was for a Sunday but this was the only opportunity to attend. I have always wanted to visit Versailles but the two hour queue up meandering up and down the pavement in the hot sun was very unpleasant and by the time we entered I had lost interest. Once inside the queues continued and people were squashed against each other, and with the very warm conditions made it even more unpleasant. Too crowded, too hot and not the 'wow' factor palace that I had read so much about. Some of the palace was not even accessible, even more disappointing. There were a few moments of enjoyment, but only a few. I appreciate that it's a very popular tourist attraction and it's the summer season for tourism but I won't return.

06/01/2023 Tour of the Murano, Burano and Torricelli islands On the DOGE, we paid only 25 euros each despite the day of public holidays. Good experience. We have seen how glass is made in Murano and what about Burano, a magnificent and magical island not to be missed. Very kind and very professional staff. If you don't have this experience you will miss a quarter of Venice

Great tour! Seeing more of Venice rather than just the usual - the glass making part seemed more like a one stop to make money in the gift shop but Murano was beautiful and Torcello was delightful, such stunning places filled with life and character

excellent tour guide. fantastic service. pick up points at each location fantastic. glass tour a must. good discount in store afterwards.

That was a great day trip in 3 different islands. Very good price as well.
