Abstract:

Take a special guided tour away from tourist-trampled routes with European travel expert, TV host, and best-selling author, Rick Steves. Sorting through the monuments of magical Venice, we trace its decline from Europe{u2019}s most powerful city to its most hedonistic. We cruise its main street - the Grand Canal - then get lost in the back lanes. For art, it{u2019}s Titian, Bellini, Donatello, and the Doge{u2019}s Palace. We luxuriate in a venerable café on St. Mark{u2019}s Square, enjoy calamari with locals in a canal-side pub, then find our own private Venice under the moonlight on a gondola.
