On this wonderful tour of the Rialto area of Venice, we learned of its historical significance, exploring interesting sites before entering the Rialto Market. At the market, we were introduced to seasonal fruits, vegetables and fish and we were even given a few recipe ideas along the way. Cecilia's research and visuals added so much to this tour. A wonderful seminar!
. Cecilia's well informed and well presented seminar makes me want to visit. I enjoyed hearing stories about her Venetian grandparents. She is a fun and engaging presenter.
Signora Sitran provided some great insights and nuances about Venice and the Rialto Market. Even though I have been there numerous times, I still learned much from her tour.
My appreciation of Venice comes from a tour I took with Cecilia in 2018. I have wanted to return since then for the Rialto Market tour. Such a joy to be able to participate in the virtual tour and will definitely return for an in person tour some spring when the small artichokes are in season. Loved the description of the preparation of them. I have never seen a scallop with the coral portion and look forward to that. Cecilia's passion for Venice made the review of the Rialto Market and neighborhood come alive.
