Welcome to one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Venice! Join my tour if you want to know more about everything this amazing city has to offer. Being a native, I know all about the interesting stories that Venice and its famous streets, canals and buildings have to tell you.

Francesco went into great detail about the ancient Jewish Ghetto of Venice. We walked through and visited many places we would not have found on our own. He was entertaining and knowledgeable with the cultural and historical aspects of the old city areas. He is a unique fellow and we enjoyed meeting him and the other people on the tour.

Francesco ci ha portati a fare un bellissimo tour della Venezia autentica, vista dagli occhi di un veneziano. La particolarità del tour di Francesco è la sua capacità di coinvolgerti e farti immaginare la vita ed i luoghi della Venezia antica. Tour consigliatissimo!
