Casa di Marco Polo Reviews
Marco Polo e’ il veneziano più famoso della storia, ma stranamente poco celebrato a Venezia. Questa targa ricorda il luogo dove era ubicata la sua casa prima di essere distrutta da un incendio nel 500... more »Marco Polo is the most famous Venetian in history, but strangely unsung in Venice. This plaque is reminiscent of the location of her house before it was destroyed by fire in the 500. Very little to see so...
La casa di Marco Polo non c’è più, è bruciata nel ‘500, e la targa che la ricorda è affissa oggi sul Teatro Malibran, sorto sulle sue rovine. Ma non importa: le case dei Polo, se non quella di Marco, ... more »Marco Polo's house is gone, it burned in the 1500s, and the plaque that reminds her is now on the Malibran Theatre, which arose on its ruins. But it does not matter: the houses of the Poles, if not that of Marco, still stand there, around a small field where you can still see two arches, one of which is Byzantine, which probably belonged to the house of Mark. The thirsty tourist can also spritz the little bacato right in the field, and then go through the low underdoor nicknamed locally "of the horns" because it is so low that it instinctively pushes to lower the head even if you pass it Fine.
An inaccurate plaque on a wall used by Gondoliers and the city of Venice to pretend that Marco Polo actually was born and/or lived there. The house isn't from Macro Polo time and the geographic location is uncertain, most likely he wasn't. Basically a tourist trap.
I was expecting a bit more than just a plaque on the wall. Given all the movies and TV dramas about Marco Polo, I was surprised not more was made of this property.
