This ballroom's Empire-style design makes it unique in the palace. Lorenzo Santi began the design work in 1822 and Giuseppe Borsato finished it in 1838. At both ends of the room, loggias house the orchestra. Peace is frescoed on the ceiling. Antonio Canova's Orpheus and Eurydice sculptures are made of Vicenza stone. All these make the ballroom resonate with opulence.

The marble group of Daedalus and Icarus, one of Antonio Canova's earliest masterpieces, is called "Empire Style."

The young Canova earned 100 gold zecchino with which he went to Rome for the first time.
This room had two uses: as a dining room for non-official events, and as an entrance to the Lombardy-Venetia Throne Room. The neoclassical furniture, the luxurious French table centrepiece made of gilded bronze, the vaulted ceiling with its "grotesque" decorations, and the candelabra-shaped frescoes on the walls are some of the best attractions to see here.
Giuseppe Borsato was responsible for the design of this space as well. Even though it was intended to be the Throne Room, it has served many other purposes over the years. All of the exquisite imperial furniture was made specifically for this palace. The enormous glass chandelier with colourful flowers was created in the eighteenth century on the island of Murano.
One of the final "public" rooms, this corner room is next to Sissi's private apartment. The ceiling decorations are tasteful but straightforward.The background paintings are intricately done in this room. Some of the things that you should pay attention to while visiting this place are the ten gilded Venetian armchairs, the baroque Venetian styled gilded large mirror, and the large glass chandelier.
The private corridor that connected Emperor Franz Joseph's and Empress Elisabeth, "Sissi," chambers are located in this room.The balcony from this room has breath-taking views of the Royal Gardens.

This oval-shaped room was the junction between the public rooms and the royal apartments. It was also the intersection point of several secret passageways. Franz Joseph and Elisabeth usually had their breakfast, lunch, and dinner here during their stay. The key Museo Correr Collections in this room are the portraits of Napoleon Bonaparte and his second wife.
This was designed to be a small "dressing room" for young Elisabeth. The walls and ceiling are highly ornate with micro-crystals, light garlands, motifs, white stuccoes, and multi-coloured flowers. The eighteenth century ‘bell-shaped’ chandelier with Bohemian cut crystal draws everyone's attention.
This is a library room that contains beautifully designed Walnut wood bookcases carved with architectural motifs. In an effort to give the city's publishing sector its own air of grandeur and selfless service to the State, Pisani were the first to establish what might be called a library-museum.
Every Ascension Day, the Doge and the representatives of the city of Venice are transported by the fabled Bucintoro to the Lido lagoon entrance. Numerous distinct Bucintoro have been constructed from the beginning of the city's existence. The Bucintoro room has several paintings and engraving that showcase the magnificence of this extraordinary art.
One may see how the city's size and shape have changed over the years by looking at these paintings and prints making the urban layout of Venice. The solemn sign that was pronounced to protect the public waterways is engraved on a marble slab hung between two windows is the show stopper piece of attraction here.
This is the best place on Earth to marvel at the severity of neo-Byzantine work. Some of the exemplary pieces of art that one can see here are the two figures of Christ on the Processional Cross along with the many decorative elements placed in the room. Coronation of the Virgin has even more incisive brushstrokes and it is a true delight to witness such astounding pieces of art.
Elm-wood bookcases from the second half of the 18th century line the walls of this room. The vintage books come from different places and eras. Another interesting item is the massive Murano glass chandelier from the 18th century. Alessandro Vittoria is to be lauded for the bust of Tomasso Rangone positioned between the windows.
The Teodoro Correr collection features major examples of the work of the 15th-century Ferrara School artists, who had a considerable impact on the evolution of Venetian artists at the time.

Since 1922, the Correr Museum has been in St. Mark's Square. It is in the Vincenzo Scamozzi-designed Napoleonic Wing and part of the New Attorney offices, which surround three-quarters of the square. The Napoleonic wing was planned and built when Napoleon was in charge of the kingdom of Italy, from 1806 to 1814. At that time, Venice was a part of the kingdom. In front of the beautiful Byzantine basilica of San Marco, where the church of San Geminiano was present, this wing was built.
The Napoleonic Wing was built in the 19th century, when Austria was in charge of Venice. It was originally meant to be the new ruler's home. It was the official home of the Habsburg court and later became the King of Italy's home in Venice. It has a double monumental facade, an atmospheric portico, a wide staircase, and a luxurious ballroom.
One of the most important things about the Napoleonic Wing is that it was built to be different from the old Doge's Palace, where kings and emperors used to live. This building shows that people in Venice want to start a new part of their history.
