Francesca M.

Vicenza, Italy

My name is Francesca and I was born in the magnificent Venetian region, in which I am still enjoying life now.

Art Historian with eighteen years of qualified local guiding experience, I love manufacturing amazing cultural experiences for my guests through the wonders of the Venice mainland: select one of the tours listed below or contact me, so we can design a tailor-made one just for you.

For me it is not just a guide's knowledge that makes a tour successful, but also their personality and sensitivity to your needs and wants.

Let yourself be guided with a smile.
