Marco's Private Photo walk was absolutely our favorite experience during two weeks in Italy. Not exaggerating, we had several private tour in Rome, Florence and Venice and saw all the normal tourist attractions--and they were great. But our 3 hours with Marco is most memorable. My 16-year old daughter was nervous at first because she was an absolute beginner photographer.... More

We went on a three hour photo tour with Marco today. This was definitely the highlight of our time in Venice. My daughter is very knowledgable and loves photography but the rest of us are pretty useless with a camera. Marco taught all four of us how to take incredible photographs. I can't Believe the very professional photographs we ended... More

Marco is a great guy and we had a incredible photo walk with him. It was a highlight for our entire trip around the Mediterranean. While my husband and I have moderate experience in photography, we are not experts. Marco brought us to intimate Venetian settings and helped us best capture the scene using good composition and reflective light. Most... More

Marco has a keen eye for beauty and knows all of the hot spots throughout Venice. He up'd the caliber of my photo library and gave me something to show off to friends when I get home. To top off, he's a really nice guy which made the whole experience even better!

My husband and I took a two hour walk with Marco last week while we were on vacation in Venice. Marco is a very personable guy with a great sense of humor. He knows a ton of history on Venice and was able to answer all of our questions about the city. (He is like a walking history book). Besides... More

Marco gave us an amazing opportunity to see Venice in a way that most people never get the chance to. Imagine S. Marco square free of tourists! This tour was a gift to my husband and one he will never forget. I initially wondered if I might get bored since I don't share my husband's passion for the camera, but... More

This was absolutely the best photo walk we have ever done, anywhere! And it's truly the best way to see Venice, with or without a camera. Absolutely not to be missed. Here's why: 1. As a native of Venice, Marco introduces you to this beautiful and always changing city as only a true Venetian can. You go places with him... More

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.
