I love staying with people, I love Venice, its light, its Art, its Beauty, and I consider it a privilege to share it with people that really wants to understand and appreciate it. Venice is so beautiful and fragile, and I think that showing its real Beauty I will help people to respect it.
Since my graduation in "Art History and Conservation of Cultural Heritage", in 2002, with a thesis on cultural aspects of the Venetian mainland, I have worked in educational programs of some of the major museums of Venice (Correr, Accademia Galleries, Doge's Palace, Peggy Guggenheim): I've worked with schools, families and groups of children, developing particular tours to explain art and history in an exciting way. I've led some special tours focusing on the discovery of the Lagoon and its nature, too, for children and adults. In the same years, as a journalist and an art critic, I have developed a special passion for Contemporary Art, and I have published reviews and small catalogues for several artists. In 2009 I gained the license to work as a professional guide in Venice, so I can now share my knowledge and passion for Art, History, and the wonderful city of Venice, with its fancy palaces and narrow streets, its dark sotoporteghi and canals, its unique history and nature.
I love food and wine, too, and I've created some itineraries for people that want to discover the traditional cuisine of my city. And, being Mum of two little and wonderful kids, I know how to comunicate the Beauty of Venice to the youngest ones.
Having worked for so many years in Venice with different people of different age from all over the word, I have developed a strong attitude to problem solving: you will be in very good and expert hands!
All my tours are private and can be customized.
Let me know what are your main interests (Art, History, Food, traditions and crafts), I will be glad to design the best tour that fits them!
NOTICE: between April the 1st and October the 31st I suggest you contact me before booking, as my availability can change from day to day or even within hours
A Recent Review of this guide
Wonderful and very knowledgeable guide! Nicoletta gave an amazing walking tour and kept us away from the crowds (as much as was possible in Venice). The boat tour was a great way to finish things off and gave us a real taste for the city.
