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.

Giudecca
Giudecca is a retreat for Venetians away from the
crowds. Symbolically, six metal teeth represent
Venice’s six sestieri (districts); the seventh,
Guidecca, points away from the others – part of
Dorsoduro, but separated by the Giudecca Canal.
Giudecca evolved from a center of shipyards and
factories to a quiet residential area with a

Hello - we are 2 couples traveling to Venice in June 2018. We will have approximately 2 days to see Venice before we take the train to Rome. What tours would you recommend for the 2 days and how far in advance should we book? Many thanks!

How far in advance do you take reservations? My wife and I along with my son, his wife and 3 children (13,9 and 7) will be coming to Venice July 13 around noon and leaving on the 14th around mid afternoon. We would be interested in a 3 or 4 hour tour and a gondola ride. What would be the cost for the 7 of us? Frank J. Calabretti, Sr.

You will have to ask Luisella but I would guess reservations need to be made about 9 months in advance.
