Fabulous half-day with Lucia! The St. Marks and Doge Palace tour was so much fun. Lucia is one of the best tour guides our group has ever experienced and we have hired many. She has an incredible depth of knowledge of the Venetian culture and the many sites to see in this amazing city. Her engaging personality and ability to relate so many interesting facts about the city will keep you entertained. I learned so much I didn't know despite having been to Venice several times. I absolutely encourage you to book Lucia. You won't be disappointed.
