Truly wonderful insight into a complex city and history. Lucia delivers this with deep knowledge, compassion and enthusiasm. Forget your guide books and audio tours ; book Lucia as you will learn so much more and in a charming and knowledgeable way.

You must take this tour! Really, it’s mandatory! This was a GREAT morning tour. And a must- do even for those of us who’d been to Venice before. Lucia was knowledgeable, funny and 100% engaged in our enjoyment of her native city. She even arranged a surprise trip to the rooftop of the Tedeschi department store for a glorious view of the whole city. Our trip included an hour on a boat, exploring the canals and that was such a treat with an excellent water taxi driver. We really really enjoyed ourselves and cannot thank Lucia enough.
