The palace has 2 arcades with 14th and 15th century capitals and sculptures, and a loggia above with a decorative brickwork facade. It was the residence of the Doge of Venice, the supreme authority of the former Republic of Venice, until the Napoleonic occupation in 1797, and is now a museum. The city of Venice is an archipelago of 117 small islands separated by canals and linked by bridges, in the Venetian Lagoon. The historical centre of Venice is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
