After lunch, explore what was once the heart of political life and a symbol of stamina of the Most Serene Republic - the Doge's Palace. An outstanding architectural masterpiece and a blend of style and epochs, it overlooks the idyllic Canal Grande. Undergoing several reconstructions over the long history of the Serenissima, the Doge's Palace remains today the most prestigious building in Venice. The magnificent facade of polychrome geometric patterns of white and pink marble resemble a stone lace - and add to its class. Splendid arcades, loggias, and courtyards are part of the century-old complex and contribute to its artistic importance, too. The inside once housed the governmental offices. It preserves precious paintings and canvas of some of the most prominent artists in the halls. But it also had a judiciary function in the Venetian Republic. It was the seat of the Council of the Ten who decided the prisoner's destiny. The Palace itself also housed the prisons. Among the most famous culprits was Giacomo Casanova. However, the world-famous lover managed to escape them, later writing a very successful memoir. To visit the Doge's Palace, the best option is to book your visit in advance in a specific time slot in order to optimize your experience and avoid long queues. You can do that easily online. The visit to the palace lasts approximately two hours. Photo: Venice to See (www.venicetosee.com)
