Enjoyed 2 amazing wineries, and spent time with the owners at each location. Such a magical experience hearing about the work they do and the passion they have for their products.

I booked the Prosecco tour with Miriam for my husband's 30th birthday. Miriam was very knowledgable and gave us a great insight into the region. We left the tour having tasted some of the best proseccos and eaten some delicious cheese, bread and meats! If you have time I would definelty recommend this trip :) We visited two wineries, however... More

I didn't actually go on the Prosecco tour because it didn't fit in with the small amount of time we had in venice. Which was a real shame! But I'd just like to mention how helpful and responsive Miriam was. Thank you.

We booked this through Viator, but our guide (Giovanni) was from Avventure Bellissime. He made our day thoroughly enjoyable, and we highly recommend this tour! He was extremely informative and knowledgeable, as well as friendly and considerate - and fun. The hill towns are beautiful, and our day was capped off with a delightful Prosecco tasting. Although lunch wasn't included,... More

Miriam gave us a delightful tour of two wineries in the area. The place she chose for lunch was delicious and had such a beautiful view of the vineyards. She shipped wine to our home for us. She knows the area so well but is a bot more quiet than many guides we encountered in Italy. It was a nice... More

As a traveler on a budget, I signed up for the group Palladian Villas tour. However, no one else signed up. Miriam offered me an affordable option, so I got to see three Palladian Villas. Miriam managed to avoid the road closures due to a bicycle ride that day, and customized the tour to see the three villas I most... More

Our group include 2 interior designers, a lighting designer and a residential real estate agent. We all appreciated the thorough information that Miriam provided about the houses we visited. She also tailored our tour to our interests, changing the itinerary to include the Olympic Theater in Vicenza and the Carlos Scarpa mausoleum at Brion Cemetery. Lunch at the Hotel Villa... More

As my boyfriend and I are both design aficionados, the prospect of visiting buildings designed by Andrea Palladio while we were in Venice, was too great of a possibility to pass up. After some research, the one that was most attractive to us was "Veneto Tours." My boyfriend decided to handle the email communication with Miriam to inquire about the... More

We did the Hill Towns Small Group Tour and it was amazing! Our guide Marco, was the best and made our day so much fun and we learnt a lot too. The views and scenery are stunning and I would thoroughly recommend this tour.

My husband and I had an absolutely wonderful day traveling the veneto region with Miriam! We went to two different wineries where we learned all about the history of prosecco, saw how it was made and sampled some as well. We also went to lunch at a beautiful restaurant with a view over the hill country. Miriam even offered to... More

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district) when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring cars and buses close to the center of Venice. Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes with energy from travelers and students. Historic palaces and former industrial buildings house some departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighborhood identity.
