Why should you decide to visit this town with a local Venice tourist guide?
Because you’ll only need to pass the bridge to understand that you’ve entered a parallel world.
A magical town that still maintains hidden corners unknown to most visitors. The kindness and hospitality of the Venetian people is in their DNA, you only need to respect this beautiful but fragile city which provides strong emotions, even if you visit it a hundred times.
Besides visiting classic monuments such as Saint Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace, which are very important for understanding the history of the Republic of Venice, we’ll visit the Rialto area and the quarters away from the usual tourist routes.
We’ll breath the magical Venetian atmosphere; we’ll discover the artisans who still live and work here creating high class products; we’ll taste the typical “cicchetti” (finger food) with an “ombra” (glass of wine).
Venice can be visited in different ways: if you come here with your family I can organize a kids’ tour for you; if you are looking for a luxury tour we can go on a discovery of boutique shops and custom-made products; if it’s your first time, we’ll have a panoramic view of the city!
Venice can only be visited on foot! Even if it’s situated on a flat plane, remember to wear sensible shoes, because there are more than 400 bridges (don’t worry, we won’t cross all of them!)!
If you wish to visit the lagoon islands, we can use the Vaporetto (water bus) or my suggestion is to take a water taxi to move around with more flexibility and freedom.
Would you prefer a slow tour in the lagoon? I can book you a Bragozzo, which is a typical Venetian boat.
Every island will be a discovery: Burano with its lace and numerous good restaurants; Murano with the blown glass production; San Francesco del Deserto with its peace; Sant’Erasmo with its vegetables, just to name a few.
Just ask me for advice and I’ll help you make the most of your guided tour.
