I do walking tours in Venice with focus on history and traditions, guided boat tours in the lagoon, and Venetian rowing lessons in a real gondola.
A walk around Venice, exploring the many messages from Venice of yore, often hidden in plain view.
A guided visit to the island Lazzaretto Nuovo, where quarantine was invented to fight the Black Death.
A walk between shipyards, oar makers and model shops, looking at boats and talking about traditions.
Explore the history of the Venetian lagoon in an electric boat with our guide at the helm. We’ll show you things that aren’t even in the guide books
A tour lasts 3-4 hours, and we can visit either Poveglia, Lazzaretto Nuovo or San Francesco del Deserto.
I’ve enjoyed Venetian rowing ever since I moved to Venice over ten years ago. I later bought an old gondola and had it restored.
If you’ve ever wondered how a gondola works, I’ll be happy to teach you.
For children I have a smaller boat so they can try too.
