 b2ap3_thumbnail_Immagine-055.jpgHello, my friends! Welcome to My Own Italy to discover Italy with my personal touch!

Our travel today is in Veneto and let's go one of the most famous cities of art symbol of ItalyVenice and its enchanting and stunning Doge's Palace!


 I must say that when you arrive in Venice, you are inebriated: the city is beautiful, full of colors, smells, sounds ... So many emotions and things to see and visit!

 So I will choose for you the majestic Doge's Palace.


The Doge's Palace is certainly the most famous building in Venice, the most representative symbol of its civilization and its historical, political and cultural events.

Along with the St. Mark's Basilica square in the background and the foreground, helps to draw one of the most famous scenery in the world.


For centuries the Doge's Palace has played three roles: it was the residence of the Doge, the seat of government of the city and the palace of justice.

 It is here that were taken many of the most important decisions that determined the fate of Venice and, sometime, even in Europe!


 This impressive building has a feature typical of Venetian architecture: lightness!


Spite of its large size, in fact, the polychrome decorations of the facade, the beautiful tracery of Gothic loggias like a precious stone lace give us back the image of an elegant structure.

 I suggest to visit the corridor that leads over the Bridge of Sighs, built in 1614 to link the Doge’s Palace to the structure intended to house the New Prisons. Enclosed and covered on all sides, the bridge contains two separate corridors that run next to each other.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Immagine-169.jpgThe famous name of the Bridge of sighs dates back to the Romantic period.

It was supposed to refer to the sighs of prisoners who, passing from the courtroom to the cell in which they would serve their sentence, took a last look at freedom as they glimpsed the lagoon and San Giorgio through the small windows.

In the end, I hope you will have time enough to spend during your holiday in the most famous lagoon in the world.


 I'm so fascinated by the beauty of my country ... and I'd like to involve you to be in love with Italy, too!

Leisure me: this is my tourism!
