Upon booking the 3 hour tour Marco contacted me to learn what type of camera I would be using and what kind of tour I wanted (photography lessons, photo opportunities, or both). This was helpful to me to communicate ahead of time as it made me focus on what I really wanted out of the tour. I never would have... More

What better way to see Venice than with a local and your very own professional photographer. Marco was brilliant with his advice and expertise in photography but also his knowledge of Venice. I had great expectations and was hoping that this was going to be a highlight of our time in Venice, my expectations were exceeded. If I do get... More

Two years ago, I went with Marco on an awesome solo tour, where I learned a lot of fascinating facts about Venice. This time, I wanted to share this experience with my husband and our friend. A very early start enabled us to avoid the crowds and see the real Venice. You should make it a priority to take this... More

An excellent way to discover Venice and learn about the city; both its past and present. Recommend the morning tour; worth getting up early to beat the crowds. Marco is a wealth of knowledge on venice and can share great tips on how to capture amazing photos, where to eat like the locals and not see any tourists (an amazing... More

See Venice with a new perspective during Marco Secchi's Photo Walk Tour! It is the best $$ I spent & our absolute favorite part of vacation. Marco met us at the Rialto Bridge at 6:00 am just as the sun was rising. It is the perfect time to see the city come to life. We were a group of 2... More

We spent a wonderful late afternoon with Marco walking the canals of Venice in June. This was a perfect introduction to a tremendously photogenic city. Marco showed us spots "off the beaten path," filled us in on local history, and gave us some useful photography tips. He also shared dining recommendations with us. Our family of 4 had a great...

We met Marco early in the morning, perfect for pictures. Marco took us to several of his favorite places to take pictures and helped me compose some great shots. He also was a wealth of information regarding the history of Venice. Excellent +++ tour

The morning walk was ideal as there was perfect light for photography and venice was devoid of tourists. Marco is a good teacher and a charming companion to walk about in venice. He is very knowledgable about venice as well. very informal and relaxing was our morning.

I had a great time on the tour with Marco. He was a very patient teacher, and he showed me areas of the city that I might not have otherwise seen. It was also great seeing the city early in the morning, before all of the crowds took to the streets. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood 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.
