    A tour of 20 or 25 is always a bit unruly, but our guide (Elizabeth) was delightful and the palace was fascinating.

    We had a lovely experience with Diana who was very knowledgeable about the history of Venice and also great at sharing fun facts. Touring the palace with a guide made it much more meaningful and a great way to learn about the city's roots. Highly recommended!
