The Doge's Palace, or the Palazzo Ducale, is an ancient palace in Piazza San Marco in Venice. The palace looks incredible due to its Gothic facade. The famous Bridge of Sighs connects the interrogation rooms of the Doge’s Palace with the New Prison.
This palace is entrenched in history as it was the ruling centre for 120 Doges. You can admire the intricate designs and the featured artwork here, or if you are interested, you can take a guided tour of the church to satiate your historical curiosities. The present-day palace was established in 1340; the previous monuments were destroyed due to fires or revamped due to political changes. The Doge’s apartments inside the palace are decorated with artworks by Veronese, Titian and Tintoretto. It wasn’t just the Doge’s place of residence but also a prison. The bridge got its name due to the sighs of the prisoners crossing it.
