Located next to the Basilica di San Marco, the Palazzo Ducale has been the symbol of Venice's political life and public administration for hundreds of years. This building has seen several changes since 1340, even though its foundations date back to the early Middle Ages. Considered a masterpiece of the Gothic style, it was destroyed many times, most notably during the fire of 1106. It was rebuilt by Barbarossa in 1177 and modified over the time by the different Doges (chief magistrates) reigning in Venice. More than a palace, the Palazzo Ducale is an extensive infrastructure, comprising of the apartments of the Doge (often used as an exhibition space), the government quarters and the Palace of Justice. In the Museo dell'Opera, you will see the remaining pieces of the building's medieval façades as well as a collection of sculptures dating from the 14th and 15th Centuries. Before heading towards the quarters,enter the magnificent courtyard and take some time to walk alongside the Loggias to enjoy the various angles of the Palazzo. In addition to the Institutional Chambers and the Prisons, do see the great collection of weapons and armaments in the Armoury. When visiting this palace, many hidden parts are definitely worth a detour.
