The true Venice: The trading center of Venice - Rialto and its market, the foreign warehouses, Marco Polo’s house. (Best in the morning)
Since the 10th century Venetians have depended on the Rialto market and its financial centre for their daily supplies of fish, vegetables, fruit and spices. Today the market is still the lively heart of the town; from there we will cross the Rialto Bridge, the oldest bridge intersecting the Grand Canal, a real masterpiece of engineering of the 16th century. We will continue towards Marco Polo ‘s house, San Giovanni and Paolo and the Venetian Hospital, once an important brotherhood of Venice, then we will see the marble gems of the Church of Santa Maria dei Miracoli and the Church of Santa Maria Formosa.
