Nonetheless, the appeal comes at a price. Venice often welcomes as many as 60,000 tourists a day.

For centuries, Doge’s Palace played a key role in the life of Venetian Republic fulfilling three fundamental roles: Doge’s residence, the palace of justice and seat of the government. This is a place where some of the crucial decisions about the destiny of Venice and Europe were takes!
When first built in the 9th century AD, the structure resembled more a castle than a palace featuring four sighting towers and high defense walls. It had a strategic position thanks to which the residents of the could control the city from the sea. As time went by, a series of fires and subsequent rebuilding turned the building to its current form, an impressive example of Venetian Gothic architecture. Despite the massive size, the colorful and decorated facade gives the building a light and elegant appearance.
The importance of Palazzo Ducale rests in its meaning during the era of the Republic. The palace was an expression of the Republic’s unique relationships with its citizens, a relationship of trust a and loyalty. Venetian citizens considered their government legitimate not by divine imposition or hereditary right as typical for other medieval cities, but as an expression of the Venetians’ choice and will.
