This is a wonderful opportunity for me to let you know how much I love my hometown and how proud I am to have had the privilege to be raised in such a unique environment.
Venice is totally different from all the other places you may have ever visited in your life; people here are different! Imagine fighting daily against the elements to survive on the water. . . well this is quite a challenge!
I am here to help you to understand how this was made possible more than 1500 years ago!
I am not only a Licensed Tourist Guide but a Tour Leader too.
I have always travelled in my own life and worked as an inbound operator in Venice and all over Italy for more than 15 years, both things combined are definitely a "plus" because I have a strong attitude to problem solving and great experience inside and outside the office which is not always offered by the people working in tourism.
I studied at the technical Institute for Tourism in Venice and then got my graduation in foreign languages always working in the tourism business since the very beginning as a hostess doing transfers.
The aspect that I love the most about my job is that I always get in touch with new people and I can customize the tours for my clients: age, mobility issues, interests. . . it is always a surprise!
All my tours are customizable, we can always make arrangements and adapt the tours to your needs before you book them.
I hope we can meet very soon here in Venice or in the Veneto Region which has a lot to offer: art, nature, tasty food and great wines!
A Recent Review of this guide
Silvia was a wonderful and very knowledgeable guide, bringing her attention to details to everything. Her communication and people skills are excellent, and she has some very creative ways in helping children learn about history! (We brought our 8 year old daughter & 13 year old son along for the tour!) She was able to tell us the history about the smallest thing in full details. Silvia is not only very experienced, but also a very perceptive tour guide. I highly recommend her!
