Description

Kick-off your experience with a wonderful stroll, live-streamed from the streets of a picturesque neighbourhood. As you take in the peaceful vibes, you will get a glimpse of day to day Venetian life, before stumbling upon a church that was used as the setting of Indiana Jones. Head towards the canal where locals love to buy their fruits and vegetables straight from a boat. Wander past the small bridges and let Valerio tell you fascinating stories about these ‘Ponte's’ and local corners of this watery city. You will virtually stroll around a hidden 14th-century church with a calming ambience and a very beautiful and richly decorated inside, serene gardens and unique Venetian architecture. The tour will end in the most scenic point of view in Venice, overlooking Doge's Palace & St. Marks' square, Canal Grande, San Giorgio and Giudecca islands.

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!
