Meet your Host
Valerio Coppo

I was born and raised in Venice and spent half my life away: getting Germanised in Bochum and Göttingen, enjoying the post-Olympic vibe in Turin, getting drunk in the worst bars in Moscow, following the silk road in Central Asia, clubbing in Berlin and pretending to be a professional manager in a multinational corporation in Africa and the Middle East. All of this to realize that there is no place like home, especially if the home is in Venice! Now I am ready to share my true love for the city, my passion for sustainable tourism, and a few tips about the Venice I like as a local. Let me show you the off-the-beaten tracks and alternative routes, let you discover hidden gems, and bring you the lagoon islands by bike or by kayak - experiences you will never forget!
