“Fantastic spooky fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

We happened to be in Venice over Halloween, so thought this would be a fun way to combine a little American and Italian culture for the kids (9 and 12). They loved the spooky stories (and probably picked up more about Venetian history and culture than during any other activity in Venice...there's nothing like gore to hold boys' attention) and I loved the food and wine. A fabulous evening with the very enthusiastic and friendly Venetian local, Monica. Definitely recommend for kids and grownups!

“Best way to spend your first evening in Venice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

Imagine being taken on a tour of some of the best cicchetti bars in Venice by a family friend and that is what it will feel like being led through Venice by Monica Cesarato.
My 19 year old son and I especially enjoyed all the stories and history relating to the sites were were seeing from the Jewish ghetto through Cannareggio. We tasted so many delicious snacks and drinks learning a little about the history of the food and revival of the cicchetti culture in Venice.
Once Monica got to know us a little better, she was able to customize the tour to suit our tastes and interests. It was a spectacular way to spend our first evening in Venice, giving us a chance to get to know our way around a bit and also getting some great recommendations of restaurants and other places to visit. I highly recommend spending some time with Monica during your stay in Venice.

“Discover Venice on a cicchetti tour with Monica Cesarato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

My husband and I took a private cicchetti (snacks similar to tapas) tour of Venice with Monica in June. We walked and used public transportation around the sestiere of Cannaregio, stopping at several osterie for great food and drink. After spending some time with us, Monica customized the tour to also include a stop at a wonderful gelateria. Seeing Venice through the eyes of a local was terrific, and I think the tour would be a great introduction for tourists new to Venice.
