Venice is a city of canals. Built on a lagoon reaching into the Adriatic Sea, it is a great place to visit.
Before visiting Venice we read about the famous explorer Marco Polo. We enjoyed the books Marco Polo's Adventures in China by Milton Rugoff and The Adventures of Marco Polo by Russell Freedman.
