Palazzo LoredanYou tour starts on Palazzo Loredan, once the house of seven Doges of Mocenigo Family. Nowadays its the Institute of Science, Literature and Arts, where you will admire the details of its interior architecture as well as its bust collection - including the most important characters of Venice!
Marco Polo’s HouseWalking through hidden “calli” (Venetian narrow alleys) you will reach “Corte del Milion” and the house where Marco Polo lived. During its restoration, archaeologists found many important objects that belonged to the Polo family, including a rare purple glass produced in Murano in the 1300's.
Rialto MarketAfter a short walk you will reach the Rialto Market where the area named “Erbaria” was specifically dedicated to the spices imported from Asia (and from the rest of the world) by Marco Polo and Venetian traders. Here you will discover how the prices of spices and fish were calculated in the past.
Water Taxi ride to Murano IslandAboard a private water taxi, travelling through part of the Grand Canal and smaller canals, you will reach Murano Island and visit a glass factory where an expert glass master, with the same ancient technique used in the past, will create in front of you a copy of the purple glass of Marco Polo.
