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.
