The Doge's Palace was the seat of government, and the law court. I am sorry I didn't take more pictures of this spectacular building. Also sorry we didn't get to take the tour of the inside.
I photographed this sculpture on the corner of the building because it seemed so dramatic. After I got home I tried to find it on Google. Apparently it depicts the judgment of King Solomon (the two women who both claimed to be the mother of an infant).
