Palazzo Ducale - the museum with paintings, tapestries and lots of weapons. For centuries, the palace was the residence of the Venetian government. It passed laws, handed down sentences of woven intrigue. Here is the famous Hall del Consiglio Maggiore - the largest building in the world, the ceiling is not supported by a single pillar. Under the ceiling along the walls Halls continuous tape are portraits of all the Doge of Venice Doge Marino Faliero apart. In 1355, Faliero conceived coup and make his power alone, but the environment had betrayed him, and rain was executed as a traitor. A place should have been his image forever closed the black curtain as a curse and a reminder of the inviolability of the Venetian Republic. This is a museum of "Glory of Venice". In many rooms of the great masterpieces of art, carved ceilings, etc., and all has been said to me great, and not very incl. nothing to add. I liked it very much force at all on what is left entirely. I crawled to the nearest cafe on the square and bought ice cream. Ate, looked at the crowd, fat pigeons, and slowly, slowly recovered for a new spurt of beauty.
