Doges Palace, Venice

20160504-IMG_9967-2_FB

I was fully ready to be unimpressed with the Doges Palace.  Indeed, anywhere where there are lots of tourists, and queues, I tend to get a bit sniffy.  I am a traveller, not a tourist!  And all that BS.

Well although we got to the Palace early in the morning, and for quite a while felt like we were, if not the only people there, in a pretty exclusive tour.  We had the headphones to get the info on the rooms we were passing through and what they were used for.  But in the end, I was just blown away with the amazing ceilings, the paintings, the reflections.

If you go to Venice, I recommend you get up early one morning and take the tour.
