VENEZIA

After 20 years spent in Torino and Milan working for a multinational company where I was not fulfilled, I felt the need to come back to Venice, city of my origins. In this beautiful city, I went back to study to obtain my professional guide card. Sensitive to the beauty and the authenticity of Venice, I decided to dedicate my life uncovering its true heart to the eyes of visitors: I created my own guiding agency with a handful of other local professional guides (Véronique, Chiara, Gioia, Marta...) and I started elaborating tours based on the local’s life spirit rather than tourist visits. Passionate about art, I am also a musician, photographer and painter who really trust his senses in order to create originals guided tours which deeps visitors in the real Venice, off the beaten tracks, for a more sustainable way to discover the city and its secrets. To me, Venice is much more than the Piazza San Marco, the Doge's Palace or the Rialto Bridge; it is the narrow streets, the people, the old cafes, the bacari, the local gastronomy, the spritz, the ciccheti, the canals, and all the stories and traditions who make the city so lively. Visit the fresh markets and learn about the Venetian gastronomy, discover Venice little paths, or enjoy a photography experience in the fishing areas and the lagoon around the city. PS : my tours could also be guided by Véronique, Chiara, Gioia or Marta. We can guide in German, Russian, Italian, English and French.
