Five star review! Francesca spent eight hours yesterday showing my wife and me the highlights of Venice. Francesca is very knowledgeable, friendly, and knows Venice intimately. She speaks perfect English. Our day was perfect and we now have a deeper understanding of all Venice has to offer. Highly recommend Francesca! Mike and Suzanne Kennedy.
