Venice and the Grand Tour

Italy has been for centuries the destination for visitors interested in art, culture, natural landscapes…

Along with Rome, Florence, Naples and Pompeii, Venice has always hosted several guests, who have left indelible traces of their permanence. Dante, Petrarch, Galileo… Goethe and Thomas Mann… Shakespeare (was he really in Venice?), Shelley, Lord Byron, Henry James, Hemingway, Ezra Pound… Peter the Great, Gogol’, Chaikovskij, Djagilev, Stravinskij, Brodskij… George Sand and Musset… Depending on which illustrious guests you are particularly interested in, we can suggest a tour on their footsteps along calli and canals, campi and campielli, and we can try to see this unique city through their eyes and their sensibility.

Time: 3 hours (for each group of famous guests, Italian, French, Russian, Anglo-American).

Notes: The fare does not include entrance fees. When visiting religious buildings, an appropriate dress code has to be observed (no bare shoulders, no miniskirts, no shorts). The fare for groups has to be agreed with the guide.
