Typically if I heard the name GOOP. I would think of some slimy greenish blob that holds no appeal. However, GOOP now refers to the Netflix series with Gwyneth Paltrow. If you aren’t familiar with Gwyneth Paltrow is a celebrity turn lifestyle guru. I originally had no interest in this show. I think the lifestyle she promotes is a little outrageous. The trailer held about zero appeal to me. I only got intrigued to watch it after Stephen Colbert took a swing at the show and brand. He was on fire and his lines were so funny! So down the rabbit hole I went, I watched the first season of The GOOP Lab.
Venice is a city full of opulence, history, and beauty. The one of the most beautiful sites being St. Mark’s Square. Turning about in a circle, you are struck on all sides by Venetian architecture. The clash of Italian and Arabic influence are twined together to create these beautiful pieces of history. However, the most unique feature of the square is the Doge’s Palace. All over Italy you can see cathedrals, and museums but there is only one Doge’s Palace. If you aren’t familiar with this place, don’t worry. I will not only tell you why you should know about this place and why you should visit if you ever find yourself in Venice, but why is the Doge’s Palace important to the culture of Venice and Italy.
