Venice is a magical place that encapsulates the finest array of architecture, a culture rich in artistic expression and, of course, romance. Proof of this is the Ducal Palace, also known as the Doge's Palace or Palazzo Ducale. This beautiful construction is a symbol of the glory of the city that you cannot ignore.

As the former residence of the Venetian leader, the Palace is the best place to appreciate these elements of Venetian culture combined. For centuries the palace represented the seat of the Venetian political power, where the Duke and his Council controlled the fate of a thousand-year history republic.

Both inside and out the Palace is a delight to behold. From its intricate lace-like facade to the sumptuous interiors with frescos by Tintoretto and Veronese, this is a place that reveals the glorious height of Venice’s most prosperous period of history. Take some time to admire the rich details of the gold staircase and the hundreds of scenes masterfully created to decorate the hallowed walls of this stately building.

Lastly, follow in the footsteps of the criminals of old as you cross the famous Bridge of Sighs, named for the sounds that would escape from the lips of the condemned as they caught their last glimpse of Venice before being imprisoned.
