Description

In this audio walking tour, you'll encounter no roads, no cars, no buses - just boats, canals, and the watery, magical atmosphere that is Venice.

The amazing sites you'll hear about include the astounding Piazza San Marco, called "the drawing room of Europe"; the mosaics of the Byzantine Cathedral; the Bridge of Sighs; a Gondola depot; and the Doges' Palace, with its torture chambers dating from the Inquisition.

You'll understand why Venetians tolerate all those pigeons, learn how coffee arrived in Europe, and why Venetian cafe orchestras play Austrian waltzes. And you'll hear about a thousand-year-old palace made of marble lace, the famous Rialto Bridge, and Venice's favorite son, Marco Polo, who introduced ice cream to the West.
