The Ducal Palace, Doge's Palace Venice, Venezia, Piazza San Marco 1, 30124, Venezia, VE, Sestière di San Marco, Veneto, Italy. 
This Palace located in Piazza San Marco, next to the Basilica of San Marco, fascinates with its arches and crenelated windows. That day with the fog rising from the Grand Canal, it became even more beautiful with soft colors.
