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 online experience with Luca is fantastic! Luca’s tour is truly an insider view of Venice. Luca has a wealth of knowledge about the city and he enjoys sharing his passion for the real Venice with the world. We have been to Venice before, but we learned so much more! Luca gives you a glimpse into a Venice you would not see as a tourist. He walks around the city in real time and explains stories that, while they are specific to a particular monument or era, give you a glimpse into the soul of the city. Luca is lively and engaging, and he interacts with everyone in the group. It is a fun experience and there is never a dull moment! It made us long to return to Venice!

Luca is very engaging, knowledgeable about Venice. His family has been there since the early 1500s. And he is very happy to share his love of his town. Venice is unique and Luca presented details that one wouldn't know otherwise. I can hard wait til travelers from the US can get back to Venice. It's a feast for the eyes and stomach.

We loved our private tour of Venice! Luca shared fascinating facts and background knowledge of Venice we didn't know and may not have heard elsewhere. His family connection to the city is firmly rooted in history and added a personal perspective to the story telling. Luca was also very accommodating and personalized the tour for us. He was a lovely, friendly and knowledgeable guide and we look forward to doing the tour again in person when we visit Venice next year! Highly recommended!

From my parents who I purchased this for: “Our wonderful Venice experience with Luca was an anniversary gift from our daughter. Luca took us on an amazing interactive virtual tour of his beloved Venice guiding us in a fun, informative, engaging way and revealing, as only a true Venetian can, the beauty and history of ancient and present-day Venice.” Thanks for making their anniversary special, Luca ! :)
