We booked a tour with "Walks of Italy" at this was a stop on our route. Interesting to learn about Marco Polo's Home.

Just had to go see where the great explorer started from. There is not much to see now as the original house bunt down. But the experience is worth it just to be at the place where it all began.

To get there you have to walk through all the little side streets, crossing the many bridges, which span the canals. There are 440 bridges in Venice. It is nothing like you would see anywhere else, I had an amazing, tiring guided tour of these areas, it was nice being on a walking trip where the guide was knowledgeable and could explain things, but sometimes I would have liked to linger a little longer in certain places.

This house has nothing special beside its famous inhabitant. The façade overlooking its "canaletto" ( small canal ) is part of the Gondola trip that starts from Rialto.

Each gondola trip near Ponte Rialto comes through the channel near Marco Polo's house). It's already pretty old house, but with that wall plate it can be always recognized!
