Seeing the Sites in Venice

We visited the Peggy Guggenheim, the Dogano Museum, and the Doge’s Palace.

The palace was like a maze. Paths leading from room to room or cell to cell depending on the part of the palace.

This painting symbolized the power of Venice, the empire, to be greater than that of the Vatican. It’s also enormous and was painted in ten panels created in a nearby building, the artists home wasn’t big enough to house even one panel, and then assembled on site.

The view of the courtyard and from the courtyard of the building was my favorite part.

We ended our evening with massages and dinner at our hotel which had incredible food. The beef carpaccio and saffron risotto were out of this world.
