Our day with Nadia was one of our best days ever! After a gentle walk through parts of Venice often missed, she accompanied us to Santa Lucia for a very special family moment. Then, we were off to the Lagoon Islands. We went to a...More
I spent many months looking for the right tour guide for my family trip which included 11 people. I contacted Nadia and asked her if she could put something together that would take us off the beaten track and into the heart of Venice. She...More
The standard tourist fare here leaves out the substantial history of Venice as a libertine city of sorts, that was open-minded enough to allow women as well as men to indulge themselves. Venice has so much rich history related to issues of gender and sexuality....More

We travelled to Venice with two other families, a total of 11 and we had the most wonderful time. Nadia is is a great personal guide. She took us in places we would have never seen otherwise and gave us a real Venetian experience.
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.
