The Doge’s Palace

The Doge's Palace

Visitors are often struck by the unusual architecture of the Doge’s Palace and its resemblance to intricate lacework or a rich tasselled fringe. While its exterior is decorated with numerous sculptures, its interior is enriched with gilded ceilings and precious pictures so that it still maintains the glory and the wealth of the formerly powerful Venetian Republic. The residence of the head of state was next door to the council chambers and prisons: it was both the hub of power and the palace of Justice. The visitor can take a close look at the history of what was once the world’s most powerful state and can admire the paintings of some of her greatest artists: Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese. He can discover the fascinating stories of the Doges and the intrigues of government. The Doge’s apartments, the Bridge of Sighs and the prisons are also included in the tour.
