About Aperture Tours
Photography tours in the heart of the liquid labyrinth. Suitable for beginners to semi-professionals to learn more about photography and go to the best spots of Venice to get that perfect shot. Indeed, you dip into Venice and its whirlwind of alleys, canals, colours, you dance with the city and end up mesmerised and wondrous. It is never enough. What makes you live Venice is the details. The reflections in the waters, the old marble doorbells, the clothes hanging out to dry, the cheap Spritzes in the University area, the Gothic decorations, the sunsets that take over sky, land, and water. It's not about quantity, but quality. Venice not only offer challenges that will better you as a photographer, but it will spark your artistic side as well.

A professional photographer took me to great places in Venice. He (Mirko) taught me very valuable facts about taking pictures in a city. I learned a lot and I was really inspired of all the experience. Great value of the money.
