My name's Luisella Romeo and I am a registered tourist guide in Venice. I run SeeVenice and offer private and semi-private tours in Venice and to the islands in the Venetian lagoon such as Murano, Burano and Torcello. You can also book walking tours in the city, both orientation tours and itineraries along the off-the-beaten paths. Boat tours with private watertaxi along the canals and guided tours to all museums and churches are also included as well as to temporary art exhibitions.

My son and I spent half a day with Luisella the day our cruise ended. We only had one day and Luisella was able to show us all highlights and enthrall us with the history of Venice. She is animated and very engaging. My 12 year old loved her. She also answered numerous questions before we got to Venice such... More

Luisella took our family of 9 (including a 3-month old infant) on a day tour of Venice. We learned so much from her tour and she took excellent care of us. She referred to our baby as her "youngest client". We went to the The Doges Palace, the Basilica, the Grand Canal, the Accademia Galleria--these were what we asked to... More

My spouse and our two teenage grandsons visited Venice for the first time in July 2016. Luisella was extremely responsive to our e-mails and happily answered all of our questions. Without knowing us, she took the initiative to purchase tickets in advance, at her expense (for which we reimbursed her), to some of the destinations we wanted to see. She... More

I can not recommend this highly enough. Luisella is just such an amazing guide and lovely lady. But the most telling of her abilities is that she kept my 14 year old daughter (usually attached to her mobile phone) completely attentive throughout the tour. We all learned so much about the history, and Luisella's passion for her topic is easily... More

Loved our tour with Luisella! We did one hour on a private watertaxi and then a two hour walking tour which included St. Marks our first afternoon in Venice. This was the perfect way to get oriented in this lovely and unique city. Luisella was knowledgeable and engaging. In addition to the history of the area, she gave us lots... More

If you think that a personalised small group tour at perhaps 40 euros for two hours is a bit pricey, Think Again! Our guide to the Castello, Dottoressa Louisella Romeo, was charming, very informative, and spoke impeccable English (she does German as well). Have a look at the SeeVenice website, where she has a YouTube video, and book with confidence... More

I cannot recommend Luisella more. Her english is great. She is very knowledgeable, humorous, and witty. She interacts with everyone on the tour and tells you more than you ever could have imagined.

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.
