Good audio guide, good voice quality. I'm not sure that a real guide could be so patient and repeat some things as per my request. For sure will try it again.

Absolutely loved the palace and enjoyed the audio guide too. It was handy also that we could skip the line and get to the palace quickly. Piazza San Marco with all the beautiful buildings and sculptures around is adorable, was great to find out more about it.
