About Doge's Palace

The Government House is the residence of the Governor of the Republic of Venice, the home of the office and the court. It was the central institution of Venetian politics at the time. On the entire wall to the east of the second floor of the Grand Senate’s parliament hall is the “Paradise” painted by Tintoretto. Inside the gorgeous Governor's Mansion, there is a gothic cloister and an expensive golden ladder. The rooms on the second and third floors are decorated with Venetian paintings, the ceiling murals of the four foyer, the murals of the living room and the large conference halls lined with portraits of the Governors of the past.

    Venice's glory can not be separated from the 41st Governor Dandolo. When he became governor, he was 86 years old, blind and hard of hearing, and had a few days to live. During the Fourth Crusade, which began in October 1204, he offered the Crusaders maritime and logistical support at a price of 8.5W Marko gold coins. Originally the sword of the Crusade meant that Jerusalem was going to expel pagans and liberate the Holy Land. As a result, Constantinople, the headquarters of the same Orthodox Church, was looted. Dandoro not only took back the labor fees, but also partitioned three-eighths of the territory of the Eastern Roman Empire. He established the monopoly position of trade and Commerce in the Eastern Mediterranean and became the biggest winner. In ancient Rome, such achievements were to be triumphant. But Dandoro, 98, did not see the cheering crowd dying in Constantinople and buried in St. Sophia's Cathedral. His son, Tonil, has always been Dandoro's deputy, helping the elderly governor to handle government affairs, both in peacetime and in wartime. So the people called on him to become governor, and even hoped that he would simply start a Dandoro dynasty. Tony refused the people's request and went out to do business. Later, there was a war between Venice and Genoa, and Tony died in a fierce battle. More than 800 years ago, Laozi was a hero.

    After two visits to Venice, the first time I watched the sigh bridge from the outside, I learned that the sigh bridge was not only visible, but actually accessible. The sigh bridge was located in the Duke Palace, that is, the Governor's Palace, linking the two parts of the Duke Palace. One side was the palace (parliament hall) and the other side was the dungeon. After the verdict, the prisoner went to the dungeon and saw it on the bridge. The story of a sigh from a lover, who came to Venice for the second time, put the Duke's Palace, the Governor's Palace, into the itinerary. There was a long queue at the entrance, but the queue time was good and it was worth visiting. On the one hand, there is a beautiful ceiling of palace murals, on the other hand, there is no freedom in a dark dungeon. On the other hand, there are different classes, lives and endings on both sides of a bridge. That is fate.

    The Governor's Palace, also known as the Dodge Palace, was originally built in the ninth century at a huge expense. It represented the wealth and power of the Venetian Republic at that time. It was repaired and expanded over a long period of time and became what it is today. The mansion of the once powerful and prosperous Republic of Venice was carefully decorated with extraordinary luxury from the inside to the outside. It seems that when it was built, the builders wanted foreigners to feel the strength and glory of the Republic of Venice. Words are not enough to describe it.

    Governor's Office (19). When I first entered the Governor's Palace, I felt that it was only a combination of Chinese and Western art models. When I was trying to assess whether it was worth visiting, I was first surprised by the exquisite marble carvings on the top of the stone ladder, which was just a staircase leading to the second floor of the Governor's Palace. The walls and tops of each room in the Governor's Palace are decorated with beautiful decorations, which are no less exquisite than the palace. This government office building in the Republic of Venice, with its luxurious furnishings and expensive decorative materials, is comparable to priceless works of art.

    Italy, Venice. Governor's Office, Ducal Palace. The Governor's Palace of Venice, also known as the Duke's Palace of Venice, was built in 814 and then suffered a fire. Now we can see that the building was designed in the 15th century. It used to be the office building and judicial center of the Government of the Republic of Venice. The Governor's Palace is 25 meters high and has three floors. The first floor is a semi-circular continuous arcade, the second floor is a flame-shaped ticket corridor, and the third floor is a solid wall with only a few small pointed windows and round windows. The walls are covered with white and rose marble, which is dazzling.

    The fare is not cheap, but it's definitely worth seeing. The stairs in the courtyard are magnificent, and the interior is as brilliant as Versailles Palace. It's connected to the prison next to it. The way to the prison is inside the famous Sighing Bridge.

    Coming here, I immediately associate with Xu Zhimo's reference in the text of our country: quot; number of stools is beauty . A large area of historical sites maintain very good! Whether coming in the daytime or at night, you can feel different customs, pigeons and crowds coming and going, which shows that this is a must-see scenic spot!

    Venice. Because Sighing Bridge is famous, so I have to mention the Governor's Palace. The Governor's Palace is now a museum. If time is rich, you can go and see it. The corridor outside the Governor's Palace has long seats for rest, while looking at Venice's waterscape and the outer islands.

    The Governor's Palace is also known as the Duke's Palace of Venice. Founded in the 9th century, it belongs to the Gothic architecture of medieval Europe. Because Venice had close cultural trade with the Islamic countries in the eastern Mediterranean at that time and a large number of Arabs settled in Venice, the mat pattern on the facade of the Governor's Palace was obviously influenced by Islamic architecture. There is a sigh bridge between the Governor's Palace and the Venice Prison. The Governor's Palace is one of the most important buildings in St. Mark's Square. It has a gorgeous and distinctive appearance. We didn't go inside.
