A week in Venice (day 2): The Doge's Palace

Never posted. Bought 1970 on my first visit to Venice.

Der Dogenpalast

First built in the 9th century, the Doge's Palace has been rebuilt several times. The current building dates mainly from 1309 to 1424. It was the seat of the Venetian government for hundreds of years and is now preserved as a museum.
