Private tour guide Francesca

Francesca R.

Venice, VE, Italy

Hello, my name is Francesca and I'm a certified guide in Venice.

I was born in Sicily a beautiful island in Southern Italy where I lived for 20 years. I moved later on to Florence to attend university there where I graduated in Byzantine Archeology.

I completed my studies in Siena where I've got a master in Preservation of Cultural Heritage.
In 2008 I moved to Venice where I fell in love with this unique city and I decided then to stay for ever!

I became a tourist guide because I like people and impress them. I love to show my city and let visitors discover its many woders.

My tours are not just meant to provide knowledge on the art, history and architecture of Venice but they are a fun experience too. I'm not a teacher delivering a boring lecture but a friend ready to fulfil your curiosity. Don't worry, weird questions are allowed too!

A Recent Review of this guide

Francesca was welcoming, friendly and superbly knowledgeable about the history of Venice, Murano and the famous glass industry. Originally coming from Sicily, Francesca was acutely aware of how the mentality of 'islanders' is often different to those who live on a mainland which was refreshing as my friend and I also live on an island - Guernsey. I recommend Francesca to anyone who wants to learn more about the cultural, art and history of Venice - you will enjoy her company.
