  • 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.

  • Being able to check where Marco Polo lived was something very interesting because of the history behind it, but don’t expect to be something breathtaking though  more »
  • It passed swayed by the gondola which got on board from the vicinity of rialto bridge. Gondriere taught me in English. I don't know if it was marco polo's birthplace, but it seems to be the house where he once lived. It was a building that didn't leave much impression.

  • 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.
  • We walked past after taking pictures of the adjacent canal and gondola (very charming). After a minute of walking we checked the map and discovered we had to walk back. Only for reading some of these reviews I'm not sure I would have known which building to look for. Don't go out of your way to see this but if close by you may as well take the detour.
  • Not hard to find using Google Maps. It isn't ornate, but it is still a fun excursion given how much pasta I intend to eat.
  • Fairly nondescript; all we found was the home with a marker on the wall above the door. It didn't appear as if there were any tours as part of the site.
