Storytelling tours

I like to show my guests – newcomers, repeaters, curiosity-seekers or scholars –
the unconventional, the site-specific, the still unspoiled, and all those mostly overlooked, yet fundamental details that are crucial
to get the whole picture of a place.

I love to bring to life stories and people, and show their past and present connections with places, buildings, churches, artworks. I strive to provide a sense of place and help my guests find a sense of belonging in what they see and experience.

An interactive, cross-generational narration aiming at engaging visitors of all ages,
as well as a child-oriented register to please the young and the very young,
and thus awake passion and interest for our heritage
and convey the importance of its safeguarding.

Each tour will be customized and paced on your own wishes and expectations.
Not a lecture, yet an informative and interactive conversation,
with a special care for your own feelings or mood of the moment. 

A nice way to assimilate a great deal of information
and get a deep understanding of Venice and its lifestyle.
