Venice & the Veneto - San Polo & Santa Croce (Chapter)
Shop backstreet galleries and artisan studios all the way to the Rialto Market, where glistening purple octopus and feathery red radicchio treviso (chicory) present Technicolor photo-ops, before breezing through elegant salons of fashion, art and scents at vainglorious Palazzo Mocenigo.
- see lightning strike indoors at the lavish Scuola Grande di San Rocco, where Tintoretto’s streaky brushwork illuminates hope in a time of plague, death and despair
- watch Titian’s red-hot Madonna light up the room inside Gothic glory I Frari
- work up a serious appetite over lagoon surf and turf at gut-rumbling, produce-bursting Rialto Market
- restaurants & bars
