Palazzo Ducale - Doge's Palace, Venice: 225 reviews and 482 photos
This is a beautiful palace, and unique in Europe in terms of its' design. You definitely feel the Byzantine and Eastern influence in this place, as you do throughout Venice. Each room is immense and amazing. The maps painted on the wall will blow your mind when you realize how old they are, and that this was the entire known world at the time. Go see the torture chamber and dingy prison. Sigh as you walk over the Bridge of Sighs. Put yourself in the shoes of the prisoners who walked across the bridge to there life in the prison across the way, look out on the beautiful Venice lagoon one last time, and you will see why they sighed.
