Doge’s Palace

Doge’s Palace is one of the best known landmarks in Venice. It was the first place we saw on our visit to the city. The oldest building dates back to the 11th century. There is so much to see, from the beautiful rooms with stunning ceilings to the jail underneath, the Bridge of Sight. I’ve decided to share a lot of pictures, but I don’t think they need descriptions, as the beauty of the place speaks for itself.

  1. This building is breathtaking beyond belief. It’s hard to believe it was built so long ago with the extensive quality of the work and all the beautiful touches, from ceilings to panels. Lovely.

  2. We only got to visit Venice for a day, so didn’t take in the the Doge’s Palace, as we just knew that we would spend too much of our time in there, a scenario borne out by your amazing photographic journey around it. That amazingly ornate ceiling would have kept me in that one room alone for some time!

    Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    1. If you are going back to Venice, it is worth visiting the palace, such a stunning place. Venice is gorgeous too, I loved it.
