Everyone knows the history of Marco Polo, but do you know this legend ?

Legend says that when Marco Polo lived  in China, he fell in love with one of the Great Khan's daughters and after marrying her, they came back to Venice together. The young and beautiful oriental princess was very sweet and polite, but didn't feel comfortable in the lagoon city and unfortunately she became victim of jealousy on the part of the Marco's sisters.

In 1298, when Marco Polo was captured in battle against the rival Italian city state of Genova (Genoa).  So, the envious sisters in law told the chinese girl that her husband was dead; reeling from pain the girl set fire to her clothes and jumped from the windows of Marco Polo's house into the underlying canal (the rio that you can see nowadays on front of the Malibran Theater).

The legend says that, sometimes, if at night you walk through the Milion courtyard (where Polo's houses stood) you can see a white figure floating in the air or you can hear a sweet song of Eastern origin.

There are no certain documents about this story , but a few years ago, during excavations in the foundations of the Malibran Theatre (built on Polo's old houses), human remains belonging to an Asian woman buried with objects of clear Chinese origins and a tiara with the imperial coat were found.

Who was this oriental woman?

 Free Walk in Venice tours - Cannaregio and the Jewish Ghetto

Venice is the most romantic and unique city on the water of the world. I want to show you the real soul of it, helping you to discover the essence and not just the touristic places.

-------------------------------------------------- -----------------

What are we going to visit:

- the first Jewish Ghetto of the world

- a real venetian park discussing about greenery in Venice

- fondamenta della Misericordia, the meeting point for enjoying the best "cichetti" food in Venice

- Ponte Chiodo, an unique bridge in Venice

- Campo San Zanipolo and the biggest church of Venice

- a political bridge with an hidden message, ponte Borgoloco

- the "mascaron" that is protecting the belltower in campo Santa Maria Formosa

.. and much more. Stop can vary acording to the day, of course the Jewish ghetto is always in the route!

-------------------------------------------------- -----------------

I will explain the secrets of Venice through these emblematic and historical places, how it was founded, curiosities, and many other things

There was a church here, now demolished, and the palace of Bajamonte Tiepolo, who in 1310 had plotted against the Republic of Venice. When the plotters were discovered the house was destroyed and it was decided to hold a feast at which the Doge (the leader of Venice) would be present, along with the representatived of the governament and the Scuole Grandi. To make the arrival of the court from the Grand canal more digbified, several houses were pulled down and the campo was extended.
