Qualifizierung: Venice (1992)

Famous writers, artists, painters have tried to describe Venice, but only visiting it you can discover the charms of this unique  and mysterious city.

Each visitor arrives in Venice with different expectations and curiosities: the  challenge is to discover them and take them into account during my guide.

Bruna Caruso  has a Bachelor’s Degree in Literature and Arts cum laude, with special emphasis in history of art and history of Venice.

She is a Licensed Guide in Venice, specialized in guiding visitors to the most important Museum and Galleries in Venice, and to the temporary exhibitions as well.
