We had a wonderful tour of Venice with Federica. She met us promptly at our hotel and proceeded to do a great walking tour of the sights of Venice. We then chartered a private water taxi and she showed us Venice from the water, a...More

Patrizia Bracceschi was our outstanding tour guide. She was so warm and nice and her comments kept everyone interested, including my two daughters who were not looking forward to hearing any history. In the middle of the tour, we were pleasantly surprised to learn that...More

Antonella gave us great advice when building the programme.

Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
