Rick Steves' Europe

Venice: City of Dreams

Season 7 Episode 10 | 25m 5s | Video has closed captioning.

After sorting through the monuments of Venice’s past, we trace its decline from Europe's most powerful city to its most hedonistic one. We cruise the Grand Canal, luxuriate in a café, and savor fresh fish canalside with Venetian friends. Becoming as anonymous as possible in this city of masks, we’ll be dazzled by masterpieces of the Venetian Renaissance and get intimate with the city of Casanova.
