Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to cancel my trip to Italy and also my much anticipated session with Marco. I emailed and let him know we would not be coming, and got a very prompt response with a full refund. I hope to be able to reschedule soon!

I can't recommend this enough! Marco is an excellent photographer and teacher. Take some time to read the information on his website so you can prepare your part in advance and make the most of the tour. I can guarantee it will be the highlight of the trip.

Our early morning photo tour with Marco was just about the most enjoyable experience my husband and I had on our recent three-week tour of Northern Italy. Marco is pleasant, patient, thoughtful, and extremely knowledgeable about both photography and Venice. His technical knowledge was invaluable. Although I have had my Nikon D600 for over four years, and have used it... More

Booked an early morning photo walk with Marco. As a inexperienced photographer with a new camera, he explained how things worked and checked settings. We walked around Venice on a beautiful sunny morning. Marco is such fun and knowledgable. We took some great photos and have the confidence to continue to improve. I would recommend this photo walk to anyone,... More

First, Marco is very prompt with all communication. He eagerly will answer questions you may have about planning other activities in Venice as well. The tour we took was 3 hours and it went by so fast! He took us all over, taught us ways of lighting and framing shots all while giving us fascinating history about the city. We... More

My husband and I spent a wonderful 2 hours with Marco, on a photo walk and tour. I am new to photography so I was able to learn some skills in a short period of time. Marco was always very positive. He also shared stories with us about the areas we strolled through. All in all it was a perfect... More

Excellent decision to book a 3 hour photo walk with Marco for personal tour around the best views of Venice. Not being experienced photographers we got to learn about the history of Venice as well as capturing some excellent photo opportunities with our Sony digital camera and iPhone's that you just could not possibly do on your own by just...

Were spent three hours with Marco and an associate of his Stefano and had a very very good time with expert instruction on the technicalities of photography with both 'proper' cameras and smart phones. We also learned a lot about the history of Venice along with conversations about current politics and current society for the Venetians still living in the... More

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.
