Our guide was well-intended, but not really sufficiently knowledgeable; also, we were taken out on to Piazza San Marco on a Sunday afternoon where there were 1,000’s of tourists; would have been far more interesting and less chaotic to visit some of the lesser-known corners...More

My husband and I took Lara's well paced, afternoon, free Venice tour and she was very knowledgeable and pleasant. She was skilled at trying to steer us through the crowds onto shady alleyways where we could learn about the city.

A big thanks to Luigi for showing us the sights and teaching us about the lesser known facts of Venice's history. Even when the clocks don't work and the cruise ships block the view :) love it!

plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and
