Giovanna

Mogliano Veneto, Italy

I am Venetian and I am an Art Historian. Since 2012 I am a licensed Tour Guide in Venice.

After University I left Venice to go to Paris and then to Brussels for 6 months and I ended up spending abroad 13 years. While abroad I took a Masters degree in Marketing and Communication and I started working in different internatinal environments. Then I moved together with my husband to Vienna. That's why I speak fluent English, French and a conversational German. We are back in Venice now since 2009, we have two wonderful boys and we enjoy being again close to our families.

What I like most of my job is to unveil my home place to curious visitors. There's so much to see in Venice. There are so many fabulous stories to tell. Every client is different, has a different background, has different expectations. Venice can satisfy each of them, the challenge is to find the right key.

I think I have a wonderful job in the most beautiful office of the world!

A Recent Review of this guide

Giovanna was punctual, friendly and knowledgeable. She provided tips on being a considerate tourist, as well as on how to use the vaporetto, where to eat, and other top sites in the city. Her knowledge of history was extensive. She was kind to our children and included everyone in the fun. It was a wonderful introductory tour of several Venetian neighbourhoods!
