Doge's Palace in Venice, Italy
An architectural wonder, this white and pink building is almost decadent. The white washed bricks, faded facade, and gothic architectre is still marvelous against blue skies. The Doge's Palace was once the epicenter of Venetian political power. This palace once served as the Doge's residence, who was the highest power in the past Republic of Venice. Today, it serves as a museum and a relic to the past.
To access the Bridge of Sighs, you must purchase a ticket to explore the Doge's Palace. The viewpoints from the windows and the bridge are magnificent. This palace is a must see in Venice. A self-guided tour will lead you through the museum, the courtyard, the residences, the Bridge of Sighs and the prison.

Exploring the palace, walking, seeing the view.
If you're looking for a picture without many people, hit the palace early. I get a little scared in the prison area so I'd advise to stick with a group if you can.
