Lucia has a great presentation to share with you in a very warm and enjoyable way. It is an extra good way to learn important history and to be engaged in a very creative learning experience. Thank you!

I had wonderful experience with Lucia on Friday evening after the long working week. I definitely will try other “online” trips with her. Interesting and not really typical part of the history is told with the great mixture of sensitivity to the topic and Italian positive attitude and humor. I really loved it and recommend for all Venice lovers or future Venice lovers 🙂

A really lively and engaging experience. The information was presented in an enthusiastic and fun way with little tests along the way. There was just a few of us so it felt very personal and friendly. A girls night ‘out’!

Lucia is a wonderful tour guide. She lives in the area that she is speaking about and dives into the history of the area to tell the story of how the area came to be. You can not go to Venice without meeting up with Lucia. Tell your friends because this is a great way to spend a couple of hours.
