Also on the Piazza, Palazzo Ducale is the city’s very own royal palace—a pillared masterpiece where the Doge or Ducale (the head of state) lived and reigned. A mix of architectural styles make it distinctly Venetian, perfect for the leader of the diverse port city it was at the time. Sadly, photography is prohibited inside Palazzo Ducale. However, the symmetrical archways and intricate tableaus facing the Piazza San Marco are available to all for a photo opportunities. Strike a pose dead center as the pillars line up behind you.
