The doge's Palace in the Afternoon
a majestic masterpiece of gothic art where the secrets of the Doge and his Council are conserved, the pulse of the Serenissima’s political power.
A magnificent structure, it was built by the accumulation of various architectural and decorative elements, with three large sections incorporating the earlier constructions.
You will stop to admire the Golden Staircase, and be dazzled by the gilt stuccowork and paintings that wind along the ramps leading to the Ducal Apartment and the chambers of the Venetian government, theGreat Council Room, which was the seat of Bridge of Sighs linking the palace’s Judiciary chambers with the New Prisons ... where even you might let a sigh escape you at the astonishingly lovely view of the lagoon and the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, as did the condemned men when they were led off to prison.
