Venece is beautiful and Doge's Palace is almost perfect example of architecture, but I don't really like this city, sorry. Probably I'm in the minority.

This place is striking! Huge! Love the photos - you really capture the essence of the place. The last one is especially good with the "Doge boats"?

Giancarlo (Iloilo Onfoot), you are absolutely right, the 1st shot of the Palace was taken from the Basilica balcony, they are side by side! :-)
