It was a treat to spend the morning with Nadia exploring the off the beaten track neighborhoods of Venice and being introduced to Venetian history and culture - the perfect way to begin our two week Italian vacation.

Since we didn't have a lot of time in Venice, having a private tour was a good strategic choice. Nadia was very knowledgeable and was able to make it 'fun' for our pre-teens.

My family and I came from Poland and decided to go on a guided tour pretty spontaneously. It was the BEST decision of the trip. Nadia showed us a side of Venice that we never thought we‘d experience! Far from the „tourist routes“, we viewed...More

Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district)
when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring
cars and buses close to the center of Venice.
Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking
Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes
with energy from travelers and students. Historic
palaces and former industrial buildings house some
departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture
