Superb! Lucia is the best tour guide in Venice! She was referred to me by a great friend. She is knowledgeable, passionate about her profession and about Venice. We enjoyed every minute, speechless! Book her tour!
If you are looking for an outstanding tour and tour guide in Venice, Lucia is fantastic. During our recent trip to Europe, we took a total of 11 tours with local guides and I must say Lucia was by far the best. Her love of her city and her people (Venetians) was inspiring. We took a 3 and a half hour tour with Lucia and wish we could have spent the whole day with her. She showed us so much of the city in a short amount of time including hidden gems, city highlights and 5 or 6 great local eateries which included great local food and wine. She was so much fun to be with and I would recommend you book a tour with her when you are in Venice. We will miss her sooooo much but if we ever return to Venice we will certainly do another tour with her. Thank you, Lucia!!! The best tour and guide you will ever have!!!
Our tour with Lucia was excellent in every way and a highlight of our stay in Venice. She is so knowledgeable and her manner is delightful. We learned so much from her; she is a scholar of art and history. We absolutely recommend her and hope to see her again in this amazing city. Grazie, Lucia!
Best tour I’ve had in Italy! To those who think there’s not much to Venice, please do yourself a favor and take Lucia’s tour! My wife and I were told the same thing about Venice - even by other native Italians - and all I can say is, wow are they wrong. From the moment we met Lucia, it was clear we would have an excellent time. She’s very warm and kind but also bursting with knowledge and passion for her city. Through our tour, we of course hit the major points of interest - San Marco and the Doge’s palace, the Rialto Bridge, etc - but we did so by way of the little traveled passageways used only by those who call Venice home. Before our tour, we might have been hesitant to take these tiny walkways, but by the time we finished, we felt confident and at ease navigating around these corridors, which we also learned are often portals to intriguing history, rich culture, and picturesque scenes we would have otherwise missed. Throughout our tour, we were delighted with facts ranging from enlightening to hilariously absurd (such as the little marble carvings on the Rialto Bridge…I won’t ruin her story, but it made us laugh out loud). We were also treated to some wine and small seafood bites at a hidden local eatery as part of the tour! And, Lucia even took the liberty of booking us a few different times for a panoramic terrace view of the city - just because she thought we would like it. Oh, and she even helped us figure out our COVID testing and water taxi for our trip back home…talk about above and beyond. We’ve been blessed to have amazing guides on our tour of Italy these last few weeks, but I have to say we saved the best for last with Lucia. Take this tour. You won’t regret it!
Without a doubt the best tour This tour is a must for anyone who truly wants to know Venice. We learned so much about the history of the city as well as some of the most amazing places we would never have discovered on our own. This tour is a must for anyone who truly wants to know Venice. We learned so much about the history of the city as well as some of the most amazing places we would never have discovered on our own. We are extremely grateful to Lucia because she went beyond just showing us places on the tour, she gave us lots of tips on what to do on our visit which helped us a lot to know Venice better and to choose the really traditional places. This tour helped us fall in love with the city and we will certainly visit again. If you are thinking about going to Venice, make sure you sign up for Lucia's tours!
You have NOT seen Venice until you see it through Lucia's eyes We are in love with Lucia! All the locals adore her which means you get the best most imaginative and proper local tour ever. You will see secret places, meet fascinating people, taste cicchetti, smell unusual scents, hear new sounds, travel and walk more than you dreamt and never get tired because Lucia INSPIRES you like the angel that whispers, keep looking around the next corner. Venice without Lucia is like a Cappuccino without milk- not a cappuccino at all! Book her now! You will NOT be disappointed. She will be wearing sky blue, Lucia Blue!!!
Great tour guide Lucia was a great tour guide! We were a group of nine adult family members and she answered all our questions. She was very knowledgeable and spoke English very clearly. She was very knowledgeable and spoke English very clearly. We are right in bed reservations at a wonderful restaurant. We highly recommend
The best tour guide we’ve ever had in a lifetime of travel! Our family of six spent a half day with Lucia on a private cicchetti tour of Venice back in 2019. I won’t repeat what I wrote in my review then other than to say that both Lucia and the tour were simply unimprovable — THE unexpected highlight of a wide-ranging, high-end trip through Europe. Fast forward three years and through lots of pandemic-rescheduled travel, we finally had a chance to get back to beautiful Venice and immediately booked Lucia for two private full-day tours. We let Lucia know that our main interests were (1) getting a real “drink” of hidden, off-the-beaten-path Venice, and (2) continuing our tour through Venice’s amazing food/wine/cocktail scene. We otherwise left ourselves entirely in her hands. Long story short, we once again had a tour and guide that surpassed every expectation. We spent hours touring and learning about unspeakably beautiful areas of Dorsoduro and Canareggio which were often literally empty except for Lucia, our family, and the inimitable city of Venice. We had amazing food and drink surrounded by happy locals, we visited (courtesy of Lucia’s friendship with everyone in Venice, I think) some closed/private locations I won’t detail here, and we spent two days with a guide whose knowledge, passion, kindness, humor, patience, discretion, and just plain old goodness/decency makes her feel to us like a forever family friend. I’ll wrap up this review this way: think of the effort and expense required to thoughtfully plan and execute a family trip to a faraway place like Venice. Think realistically about the number of times you’ll actually make it there. And now trust me when I say that a guide like Lucia is like the catalyst — the unexpected secret ingredient — who makes each of those hours and dollars pay off the way you hoped and dreamed but almost never actually achieve. She is the best tour guide we’ve ever worked with anywhere period and we could not recommend her more highly. Do your life a favor and reach out to Lucia if you’re visiting Venice. You can thank me later! :-)
The best tour guide The best guide we had in Venice, pleasant explanation, entertaining, sense of humor, local tips, intriguing about the city, encouraging to ask questions, full of knowledge in every field.
Don’t miss the chance for a walking tour with Lucia! We loved our walking tour in Venice, organized and led by Lucia! She is warm, enthusiastic, extremely informative, and fun. She is a master of the history, the places, the dates, and the politics of the long history of Venice. She communicates clearly and brings pictures and maps to supplement her narrative. We highly recommend Lucia, you cannot find a better guide in Venice!
