    The basement of the Doge's Palace contains several prison cells which housed prisoners during their interrogation and trial. Giacomo Casanova (famous as a womanizer that his name remains synonymous with the art of seduction), the palace's most famous former prisoner, escaped from one of these cells in 1756.
