    Cannaregio Area

    by

    Good location just a short distance from Rialto Bridge. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is a elevator. The breakfast is just ok. No fresh fruits in fall. The maid staff is more friendly than the reception desk. Rooms are clean and comfortable but, beware that some rooms have a window that face a brick wall. # 201, 301. I stayed in 301 and there was a stareway next to the room where footsteps could be heard as early as 7:30 in the morning. There is an outside sitting area however, it is set up to be a part of the resturant. Not always available for ourside lounging. Directly next to the Teatro Malibran.

    Unique Quality: This location is nice for being very close to the Rialto Bridge and all of the markets nearby.
    An easy location for strolling into the Cannaregio Area as well. I chose this hotel because I had stayed in the San Marco area 2 times before. I wanted to discover other areas.

    Directions: Disembark at Rialto Bridge Vaparetto and walk to the right behind buildings. Make a left into Campo San Bartolomeo and continue on toward bridge. If you cross more than on bridge you have gone too far.

Teatro Malibran

by rich77

Not famous as well the Fenice theatre, this "teatro" represented for much time the light theatre in Venice, with representations of comedy and "light" tragedy (but originally was dedicated to the music). Last years, specially after Fenice's fire it was used more with classical operas and concerts.It's very very close to Marco Polo's House. Built in 1677 with the name "Teatro di San Giovanni Grisostomo", new owners built again it in 1834 and thanx to the famous singer Felicita Garcia Malibran they chosed to change the name in Teatro Malibran.

A night at the opera?

by fipsi about La Fenice resurrected

This more than 200 years old opera building burnt down on Oct. 30th, 1995 - for the third time (after 1792 and 1836). The interior was damaged completely, fortunately thousands of valuable documents from the archive (including approx. 100 original letters from Verdi) were saved.

Giuseppe Verdi worked in that opera house for more than 13 years. The world premieres of "Rigoletto" and "La Traviata" took place in that building.

La Fenice (means "phoenix") was finally reopened in 2004. If you like opera-music then you should not miss a performance in this building or on the opera's second stage, the even older Malibran theatre. I guess it's clear not to appear in old jeans and/or T-shirts....

The house of Marco Polo

by rich77

Behind the Theatre Malibran, there is the house of Marco Polo, the famous traveller who went for lot of years in Far East and wrote his memories in "Il milione".

Corte Prima del Milion and Corte Seconda del Milio

by suvanki

CANNAREGIO

Wandering around, I'd spotted a gondolier pointing out a building to his passengers, and heard him say 'Marco Polo'. Looking up, I spotted a plaque, which I think indicates the house where Marco Polo lived.

I passed through a sottoportego and found myself walking underneath an archway decorated with intricate Byzantine carved patterns. Apparently this dates back to the 12th Century. I saw further Byzantine emblems on the wall of the Courtyard that I'd walked into. This first courtyard was Corte Seconda del Milion (pics 2-4)

As I carried on a bit further I came into another enclosed yard, which was named Corte Prima del Milion. Above a restaurant door was another plaque. Consulting my guide book, I finally found that this and the first courtyard were where Marco Polo and his family had lived. The family house formed part of the building that houses the Teatro Malibran.

After spending 17 years in the court of Kublai Khan, in the Far East, Marco Polo returned to Venice in 1295. His tales of this exotic land and his encounters were recalled with some exaggeration. His habit of quoting vast numbers led to him being nick - named Il Milione (The Million) Presumably this didn't offend him, as he titled his memoirs Il Milione. This piece of work was to be the first written account of Asian life to appear in the West, and was to be unrivalled for many centuries. It was completed in 1298, while a prisoner of the Genoese. There is still some controversy as to the authenticity of his travels and exploits
