“Choose a job that you love and you will never have to work a day in your life “ (Confucius)
To be able to communicate the love for Venice so that any visitor should wish to come back to see and know more. To be both a certificated tourist guide, reliable,knowledgable and professional, and at the same time act as an “old local friend” would do.
My background

Born and risen in Venice, after High School (Liceo Classico) she graduated MD in Political Sciences at the University of Padua. She has been a certified teacher of English language and literature in High Schools, Secretary General to the Università Internazionale dell’Arte (U.I.A.) of Venice and has developed further experiences in the fields of marketing and communication, tourism and fashion.
My advice

Above the Classic Itineraries (for those who visit Venice for the first time), a trip to the Lagoon in the typical fishermen’s boat, the “bragozzo”, to better understand the historical origins of Venice and dive into the light reflecting the lagoon waters where the colours and the intensity of the venetian painting were born.To get lost in the Venetian alleys and visit the Museum Palaces not only for their contents but also to retrace the centuries of public and private life of the Republic of Venice. To take advantage of Temporary Exibitions to visit places otherwise closed to the public.
