“There is still one of which you never speak”. Marco Polo bowed his head. “Venice”, the Khan said. Marco smiled. “What else do you believe I have been talking to you about?” The emperor did not turn a hair. “And yet I have never heard you mention that name”. And Polo said: “Every time I describe a city I am saying something about Venice”.Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities
WHO WE ARE
We are Giovanna and Nadia, two licensed Tourist Guides of Venice. We offer tailor-made cultural tours to individuals, families and small groups. We work in Italian, English and French.
We do also organise Food & Wine tours in collaboration with Cecilia, a professional sommelier.
Our mission is to make the visitor feel at home, to guide him – or her – into the rooms of this palace-like called Venice. Venice is our birth place, it’s our home.
We believe in tourism and in culture as a method of learning and of having fun also for the very young. To travel with the family is possible and is an opportunity to see places from a different point of view, learning and enjoying it! For this we have planned itineraries specially-made for families and have tested the tours with our own children and children of friends. Every tour is planned with game activities and, at the end, a small prize!
We believe in a tourism that is of quality and sustainable. Our guides are qualified, Venetian by birth and have studied itineraries alternative to the more classic tours. Our tours promote the local artisans, our history and our traditions. We are members of BestVeniceGuides and of SustainableVenice, the two leading associations of certified local guides in favor of a sustainable tourism in the city. We want you to love Venice as we do.
