Palazzo Ducale (Doge's Palace)

4 saves

Recommendation by Lemi

Palazzo Ducale is a grand piece of Gothic architecture that served as the city’s political and administrative seat, mainly as the home of the Doge (Duke). The white stone, pink marble structure retains much of its original 14th- and 15th-century foundations, while Renaissance, Mannerist, and modern touches were added in later years. Out of all the palazzo’s (Italian for “palace”) ornate rooms, the enormous Sala del Maggior Consiglio (Chamber of the Great Council) is the most jaw-dropping. It boasts impressive murals by renowned Italian artists, such as Paolo Veronese and Jacopo and Domenico Tintoretto.
