The Doge's Palace is the most beautiful star in this most beautiful city - a labyrinth of the most fabulous splendour, progressing from the ground floor corridors into the broad inner courtyard, and up to the balconies of the first floor that look over Piazzetta San Marco, then ascending the glorious golden staircase to the second floor.

Chambers and corridors continue to increase in magnificence and glory, culminating in the unsurpassed Sala del Maggior Consiglio.

Still further on the passages pass through the Bridge of Sighs and into the depths of the old stone prisons. Phespirit went every step of the way in a state of deepest reverential awe.

Everybody with the means should endeavour to visit this place.
