A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:
Travel writer Rudy Maxa calls Venice the most beautiful city in the world, and it's not hard to see why. Join Rudy and his daughter Sarah for an in-depth exploration of one of Italy's most unique cities. Rudy will teach you practical lessons about traveling in Venice while showing some of Venice's oldest traditions, such as mask making and how to make a perfect plate of risotto. With his help, you'll be able to navigate local transportation and avoid the many tourist traps like a true Venetian. Whether traveling by traghetto along Venice's signature canals, or by foot through its historic back alleys, you're sure to find a side of the city that speaks to you. By the end, you'll have discovered much of Venice, learned how to get the most experience for your money, and maybe even learned why Maxa is referred to as public radio's original savvy traveler.
