My name's Luisella Romeo and I am a registered tourist guide in Venice. I run SeeVenice and offer private and semi-private tours in Venice and to the islands in the Venetian lagoon such as Murano, Burano and Torcello. You can also book walking tours in the city, both orientation tours and itineraries along the off-the-beaten paths. Boat tours with private watertaxi along the canals and guided tours to all museums and churches are also included as well as to temporary art exhibitions.

The reviews speak for themselves. I have never seen a better guide and she exudes wonderful energy. All I can add is if she is free you are lucky.

Luisella was a pleasure to deal with from planning through completion of our tour. She was extremely responsive to email and worked with us over the months to customize our recent tour. She had great suggestions and incorporated all our desires into the touring schedule. The tours themselves were great- she was able to engage all 4 of us and... More

I booked Luisella for two half day tours of Venice for me, my wife and two daughters. She was one of the best tour guides we have ever used. Any question we had she easily answered and she also explained so much more while remaining very engaging. I first booked Luisella months in advance of our visit to Venice and... More

Grazie, thank you for this beautiful review! Loved being with you all!

Luisella is one of the top ranked guides for Venice, and rightly so. From the first email I sent her, months before our visit, our experience with her has been nothing short of stellar.

Luisella’s Venice! That’s how we felt. It was our first trip to Venice and Luisella shared the love of her unique and marvelous city. She introduced us to the history, extraordinary culture and curiosities of Venice. She guided us away from crowds to the quaint and quiet streets along the canals, giving us a chance to peacefully marvel at our... More

Thank you for this great review! A great idea to enjoy a different perspective of Venice! And I love to show that Venice is a city with a lot to discover. The silk factory Luigi Bevilacqua is for sure one of the highlights and to see these women working at the ancient looms makes us understand how alternatives to mass... More

I did not have long to spend in Venice, so I wanted to maximize my time in the city and have someone else do the thinking for me! Booked a tour with Luisella and would definitely recommend her.

We met Luisella at a predetermined location. Luisella was on time and took us on a two hour tour around St Marco square area. Our college age children were with us and Luisella was so engaging, entertaining, and enthusiastic, everyone enjoyed the tour. We would highly recommend Luisella and cannot say enough positive things. We will definitely use Luisella again.

Luisella was easily among the top guides we have ever had. She was charming, knowledgeable and lively and kept my teenage son totally engaged. She brought the Doge's Palace and St. Mark's to life. Do a tour with her. You will not regret it. We will be sure to use Luisella on our next visit to Venice. Bravo!

We spent 2 fantastic days with Luisella in November. She obviously loves her city and her passion for it shows. She has a deep knowledge of the city's history, and when she tells a story of what happened in the 15th or 16th century, you would swear she was there in person! We saw all the main tourist sights, but... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
