I'm a native Venetian guide, born and raised in Venice, with a family tradition from 1576, so 100% Venetian blood.
I used to welcome visitors in my unique city since I was 16 years old, thanks to my grandfather, one of the oldest guides of Venice, who transmitted me, through his experience, the passion our family has for Venice.
I love to be a guide in Venice because clients with me feel they are experiencing the city from completely a different and exclusive perspective: the Venetian eyes!
My goal is to leave you with the best authentic experience of Venice, rich of funny stories, legends and millenary traditions, to make your future visit EXCLUSIVE!
The REAL Venice can be discovered only with a true Venetian, and I'm here ready to guide you in this fascinating atmosphere!

This was such a fun and wonderful experience! I love that it was live, and we walked around Venice with Luca. The stories were engaging and interesting and we had such a nice time!

Luca did a good job connecting with each member of the tour. The tour was well-organized, the visuals were beautiful, and the stories were interesting, fun, and well-presented.

Luca created a truly special experience sharing insights and stories into the history and life in Venice. I will definitely be looking at any other tours by Luca.

Can I do this experience every single day? It was so wonderful to see beautiful, beautiful Venice and hear new stories about that fascinating city. Luca did a terrific job of involving all of us and making it fun as well as informative. I don't usually hire guides -- I LIKE getting lost in Venice -- but I would love to tour Venice with Luca. Someday!

since our italy trip couldn't happen this year as planned, it was fun to at least spend an hour with an italian host on a zoom walking tour of venice. luca was a friendly and engaging guide who shared his venetian knowledge and family stories. my mom and i very much enjoyed this experience and look forward to hopefully visiting in person sometime soon!

Loved this tour. It is an actual walking tour (Luca walks around in Venice with his camera), which made it extra-fun. Also great to see that the situation is a bit better in Italy, with people being out and about to some degree. Definitely recommend this experience!
