We were enthralled, intrigued, delighted & educated. Nadia’s approach as story teller & friend in Venice works. We were looking for more than the usual & Nadia’s approach surpassed our expectations. We highly recommend Nadia as a Venetian guide

Leave the center of Venice to the tourists! Nadia will give you an informative and real Venetian look at some areas that will be hard to stumble on. Don't forget the power boat addon. We've been on many boats in Venice but again, Nadia will...More

Linda was a spectacular guide in Venice. We learned so much and getting to the "unseen" and "untraveled" places in Venice was a real treat. We especially enjoyed Linda's knowledge and her professional and friendly demeanor throughout our day with her. Everything was well organized...More

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
