Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), next to St. Mark’s Square (Piazza San Marco), is one of the ‘must see’ museums in Venice, Italy. The palace has been destroyed several times by fire, but you can still find some traces of the original palace build during 12th century. You can also easily get an overdose of art by walk in the almost endless number of rooms filled with splendid paintings in the walls and ceilings.
The courtyard displays the open arcades giving the impression that the upper part of the palace floats over the two lower floors.
