Just nearby, you can find Palazzo Ducale, the other admirable artistic work. The building was a seat of duke and government. The construction, including two front facades of Gothic style, made from white stone, forms an ideal object for each photographer. Nevertheless, the Church Santa Maria della Salute is most photographed  object in Venice. You can see it immediately after entrance to Canale Grande, but its wonderful silhouette is created at view from Piazetta San Marco, close to Palazzo Ducale.


Ponte Rialto, a bridge leading over Canale Grande is, no doubt, another very popular and visited sightseeing. This is the oldest one of all bridges, arching over canal, where thousandVenices of tourists are passing. Here,they can fully enjoy a fascinating view towards Venice snug corners as well as peaceful gondols´ navigation.

The Golden House (Ca´d´Oro) belongs to rare buildings of Gothic style. This building coming from 15th century, could be proud on its marvelous front facade from its outside part, and rare jewels in interior, such as the paintings, statues, carpets or frescos.

VeniceAnyway, Venice is offering the other interesting places, which are worth to be visited. You can find there numerous museums, galleries and churches.
