Each city is blessed with a few representative places which are distinguished by their beauty and significance. When I think about Venice, one of its symbols is in my opinion, the Doge’s Palace.
This impressive palace was the residence of the Doges of Venice, the chief magistrates and leaders of the city during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.This Gothic masterpiece is situated right in the heart of the city, in the charming St. Mark’s Square.
A visit to this place will give you the opportunity to plunge into the Venetian history, culture and art. The itinerary begins with the Opera Museum, the courtyard, the Loggias and finishes with the Doges’ apartments, the institutional chambers, the prisons and the armory.
It is an interesting journey into the doges’ world which will give you the chance to find out a lot of details about their lives, principles and values.
In my opinion you cannot leave Venice without visiting the interesting Doge’s Palace. In case you are curious about all the things you can admire there, take a look at the following pictures!
