During the visit to the Doge's Palace you can visit the dungeons and wet wells of the prison, the armory and the noble halls, among them, the 'Duke's Apartment' whose walls hang pictorial works by Veronese, Tiziano or Tintoretto.
And precisely another work by Tintoretto, 'El Paraíso', considered the largest canvas in the world, can be seen in the Sala del Maggior Consiglio, where more than 1,000 people voted for the fate of La Serenissima.
