Every city, town and village in Europe has at least one market day. The larger cities, such as Venice in Italy, Marseille in France or Valencia in Spain have markets all week and in various locations.

The Riva degli Schiavoni in Venice, Italy, is a promenade on the waterfront of Saint Mark's Basin, that welcomes crowds to the many market stalls as well as hotels, bars, restaurants along the historic walk.

Built in the 9th century from dredged silt, the Riva degli Schiavoni in Venice, was named for the Slavic men who brought cargo across the Adriatic Sea. The market stalls probably started in the 15th century, when the Slavs and Greeks moved into the area around the Riva degli Schiavoni and sold the meat and dried fish at the wharf.

Today, the stalls are full of Venetian souvenirs, as well as produce, breads, tasty pastries and confectionery. There are wares for all tastes.
Some of the hotels on the Riva degli Schiavoni in Venice, Italy, were once grand palaces - the Hotel Daniell is one that was transformed from the Palazzo Dandolo. The lovely architecture is not only prevalent along the Riva degli Schiavoni but also across the water to the south, on the Giorgi Island where the Palladian style of buildings create some impressive views.
