About Alvise Private Tour Guide in Venice
Buongiorno! My name is Alvise , a very common name here in Venice, used by the doges during the Venetian Serenissima Republic. In English it can creatively be translated in Elvis! I am born and raised in Venice. Done with my studies at the University of Venice in Art History and Conservation of the Cultural Heritage, I decided to undertake the route of a professional tour guide in my city!
