News and Curiosties: face to face with the most unique Venice

Venice is a decidedly unusual city. Indeed, it is the only one in the world with picturesque Renaissance and eighteenth century palaces reflected in an intricate network of romantic and evocative canals.
The genius that generated such wonder on the water can also be found in the originality of the local cuisine, which is rich in oriental influences and typical dishes that embody the fervent creativity of the local workers. Its age old history offers up extraordinary gems of every type of magic and curiosity.
To visit Venice in an original way, we also propose a series of interesting guided tours through both the classic routes and outside of the tourist areas, accompanied by DOC Venetian guides and escorts who will lead you on journeys of discovery through (calletta) alleyways and (campiello) squares off the beaten track.
