Welcome to the Most Unique and Romantic City in Europe… Venice!
During this amazing tour, you will see the real Venice and experience the best parts of the city with a local friend… feel like a true Venetian for one day!
I will take you on a 2 hour walking tour of the downtown area of Venice. This will help you to find your bearings and show you some of the unique places and sites of the city with a local.
As your private tour guide, I can adjust the schedule, duration and activities to meet your needs. Please let me know of any special requests you have.
We will walk in the narrow calli (streets of Venice) of San Polo and Santa Croce districts. See Venice with Venetian eyes… I will answer all your questions: Why and how Venice was founded – Why Venice is in the middle of a lagoon – Who was the Doge of Venice – How we lived in the past and how we live now.
I will teach you how to get around Venice… what to see and what to do… what to eat… What to drink… feel like a Venetian for a day! The itinerary may vary if we start in a different point or due to unforeseen events. Given the historic nature of the places visited, a certain degree of walking will be involved. Our day and the time we start the tour is flexible and is meant to accommodate your schedule and your walk abilities. I’m a Licensed Tour Leader and NOT a Licensed Guide and will NOT be able to guide you inside Churches, Galleries and museums.
Your adventure awaits!
I've been working as a Tour Escort in Italy and Europe since 1992. I started working in Venice in 1994 and I love it. . . there's not a job in the world better than mine! I will take you through the intriguing maze of narrow 'Calli' and Canals found in some breathtaking parts of my town, away from the crowded streets and tourists, to discover the unknown secrets of Venice. . . where time has stopped it seems for centuries. Sometimes I feel I talk too much but there's so many things to see, to discover and to say about Venice! I'll tell you stories and anecdotes of the city that have been passed from my ancestors. On the panoramic tours I'm always saying that when I'm starting to talk I cannot stop! But I love my job and I really want my clients, after spending a few hours with me, to take home something special. You will fall in love with Venice, that's a guarantee!
