“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

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.
