We had a 3 hour tour of Cannaregio as well as San Marco area, which for us was a very nice combination. Ermanno ('one of the last Venetians') was very eager to show us the authentic Venice, not overloaded by tourism. He made clear that Venice has become 'Venice Land', a place for tourists and hardly anymore for Venetians. It gave a rather sad perspective to the beautiful city. Meanwhile Ermanno also showed us many very nice and interesting details that opened up Venetian history.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Ingrid...from "One of the last Venetians"!!!!
