  7. 7. HOW TO GET AROUND? Getting around by land For most italian during the Renaissance traveling by land is limited to the local fair or farmer’s market. Getting from point A to point B by land during the Renaissance is not easy. Roads are little more than rocky pathways, and could be dangerous, with bandits waiting to pounce on unsuspecting travelers. The very wealthy travels with dozens of men-at-arms for protection for this reason. Common vehicles for traveling on land during the Renaissance include horses, pack mules, wagons and for the wealthy, coaches. The most common way to get around on land is on foot. And it was usually the most efficient. Getting around by water Merchants, missionaries, soldiers, students and pilgrims are the most likely to use sea travel during the Renaissance. As trade and exploration increase during the Renaissance, overseas travel became more popular. Though you can travel to distant lands by ship, it is not without serious dangers. In many parts of Western Europe, water travel was also popular for short distances. Rivers, canals and lakes offered much quicker travel time than by land. However, river travel was not always reliable. In dry times water levels could drop too low for barges or boats.

The Council of Westminster decreed in 1076 that no man should give his daughter or female relative to anyone without priestly blessing.

But it wasn't until the 16th century Council of Trent that decreed a priest was required to perform the betrothal ceremony.
