Diego and Lucia have created just the right sort of language school - small classes, experienced and skilled teachers, a homely and welcoming setting. I always look forward to classes.

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San

Yes, it was very sad that a tour with so much potential turned out so poorly. Melissa Muldoon's poor performance and lack of professionalism almost ruined being in one of the most amazing cities in the world. I too could never recommend Melissa Muldoon for a tour anywhere.
