Tour description

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. I love helping tourists discover the lesser known and more hidden history of Venice. On my tours, I have many fascinating anecdotes that really make the city and its colorful past come to life.
This tour includes, but is not limited to these iconic places:

  • the Jewish ghetto
  • the oldest Jewish ghetto in the world
  • Casino di Venezia, the oldest casino in the world.
  • The Church of the Illuminati,
  • The Rialto fish market,
  • The Rialto Bridge (featured in the 007 film Casino Royale)
  • The site of the old brothels

What are you waiting for!? Book your tour with me and discover a side of the city that many tour guides never give you the chance to see. Find out why so many travelers have given me a 5 star review on TripAdvisor! Thank you so much my friend!
