Marco Polo's house is historically significant, but there isn't much to see here. It is marked by a simple plaque on the side of the building. We were walking nearby anyway, so we took a short detour to see and photograph it. It was impressive...More

Passed this house on a gondola ride. It is supposed to be the house of Marco Polo the adventurer and explorer. There was not much to see only a plaque on the outside wall. A quick trip here was enough.

During our walking tour of Venice, our guide Simone said there are many houses that claim to be the one of Marco Polo. The original house burned in 1597 and a theater was built in its place. You will find plagues throughout the city stating...More
