The Doge’s Palace adjacent to the Basilica was the seat of power for the Duke of Venice when Venice was it’s own territory. It is now a tourist site and gets lots visitors everyday. The palace is ornately decorated with gold leaf ceilings and paintings done by famous artists. With the biggest canvas painting in the world in this palace. Every room is different and a wonder to be in. That I couldn’t help but wonder about the lifestyle of the rich and how opulently they lived.
It also reminds me that art transcends generations and if done right can never go out of style.
A must see monument in my book!
