The Doges' Palace, which Ruskin called "the central building of the World", was the official residence of the Dukes of Venice, and the seat of the Venetian governing institutions, from the 9thC until the fall of the Republic in 1797. The airy, graceful structure of the Palace celebrates the unique political stability of Venice, governed according to a complex system of checks and balances that restricted the power of individuals, and prevented the factional rivalries.
You'll be overwhelmed by the multitude of paintings that cover the walls, broadcasting the image of Venice as the Most Serene Republic, an ideal State whose enduring independence was taken as a sign of divine favor.

The Church of Saint Mark was built in 829, and rebuilt in 1063, to enshrine the body of the Evangelist and was the Doges' Chapel, and the Church of the State for almost a millennium. Its walls are encrusted with almost 90.000 square feet of magnificent mosaics, rare marbles and carvings.
