Get Up & Go: An "Armchair Trip" to Venice - The Gem of Italy
Marilyn Straka will lead a trip to Venice and show why 'Water is Life'. See the canals, used by Venetians through the centuries for transportation, all city services and, of course, by the gondoliers who are so popular with tourists. Walk through the city (no cars allowed) as we explore hidden passageways and courtyards. Learn the history of ship building, follow art through the ages and see St. Mark's Square with its dueling orchestras. It's a gem!
