The Doge's Palace provides the inspiration behind an enthralling evening in Venice.
In Venice, both romance and logistics are all over the map and, unsurprisingly, we had a few ups and downs. We did some things right (like splurging on Wi-Fi so we'd never get lost) and we did some things wrong (I'm looking at you, bed bug infested guest house), and then there were some mixed moments (like choosing a vaporetto over a gondola) but our best decision of all was to spend our date night not with each other, but instead with the Doge.
Exactly who is the Doge? Why, only the most important person in all of Venice -or, at least he was several hundred years ago. Dozens of Doges have left an indelible mark on the city since 728 A.D. and it seemed only fitting that their collective, compelling spirit accompany us for an intimate evening in the city.
