My wife and I recently were in Venice as part of a Italian cruise on Celebrity Solstice. We arranged for a 1/2 day tour of Venice along with the water tour in private taxi. WOW! What a fabulous time. We met Antonella in St Marks Square (San Marco) between the 2 iconic pillars and started with the Doges Palace and the Catherdral. Magnificient! Antonella, with her historical knowledge and degree in Art History, really knows every little detail about what you are seeing. Which makes it fun because there really is no question that she cannot answer.
She is friendly fun and professional. (It is not surprising that several of the US universities use her as a teacher for there semester abroad programs in Venice) The water tour segment was outstanding and Venice from a boat is not to be missed. The boat was beautiful and we saw a lot that you would otherwise miss - such as the show where the gondolas are custom built and repaired! Would recommend Antonella to anyone who is looking for a terrific introduction to Venice! 5 stars
