He worked with us in planning the best use of our time and went above and beyond with flexibility to ensure we could see as much of Venice as we could.

I am sure I tried Igor's patience with my numerous emails and itinerary changes but he was a pleasure to deal with. I signed up for Venice walking tour, a day trip to the Dolomites and also another day out to the countryside. Enjoyed the Venice walking tour the most because I had a fantastic guide - Lorenzo was very... More

Lorenzo was a great guide. Thanks to his introductory tour, we got a good overview. He gave us many tips and was anderes great help for us. So the following days we had no problem to find our way around. Especially, great was his recommendation for a glass workshop!!! Perfect choice to start our trip with a walking tour.

We were taken around Venice by Barbara and had a wonderful tour. She was flexible, knew an incredible amount about her home city, and helped us see and appreciate the non-touristy side of this beautiful city. We also booked transportation from the port to our hotel and from the hotel to the airport with them and everything went very smoothly.... More

Igor was quite simply one of the best resources I connected with in Venice. He not only arranged an excellent gondola ride (to my exact specs - in a quiet area and with an honest, informative gondolier) as well as an excellent tour of the Doge's Palace, but he responded to every question I had in a timely and exacting...

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.
