Basically and necessarily I've always worked with tourism. So I can speak foreign languages and know how to direct you: with my tips you can have the best saving money.
I can make you sail the lagoon, cook wonderful dinners or simply leave you intimately alone at home, as you wish.
I like to host a lot some people and to give my best. I'd like to host no more mass tourists, but Venice lovers and fans and support any kind of cultural trip. I look for brilliant people who deserves good company: slow, wise and learned travelers, not normal tourists. Unlucky, most of my guests are 1-2 nights travelers. Nice and happy, but I don't find many opportunities to enjoy the vera dolce vita I'd like to offer.
Anyway, in the original spirit of airbnb, this is not an impersonal, aseptic hostel, but a funny bnb for a full pleasure-stay.
I was born and grown here in Venice: trying to follow our true travelling and trading tradition, I'm a tolerant, open-minded cosmopolitan. But one of the Last Mohicans: i belong to those 60k of surviving real Rialto residents, resisting the 30 mlns tourists' invasion. I'm an engaged citizen: with my community of friends, we try to fight the downtown's gentrification and to preserve its environment with many cultural happenings.
I've also worked with theaters, cinema, biennale, museums, festivals: I know 360° of my city rich cultural life: from the official to the most alternative and underground. I'm an erudite deep connosseur of its huge history and fine arts.
I'm new here but an experienced host, I've done it some years as couchsurfer. Informal, but with important guests sometimes: artists and even a couple of celebs in my life.. anyway lots of people.
I have time to spend tripping, touring, cooking and having nightlife. I've also worked for important bars and restaurants, I'm in love with wine and gastronomy. I can definitely be a good guide for gourmand!
I'm liberal, libertarian and libertine and so are my favorite guests: that's enough. But I'd like to bring them more to theaters and museums.
I like also touring to other locations like closeby historical cities, Ville Venete, beaches and islands by boat, trekking and climbing to the Dolomites.
About Venice historic tours, I'm the best on secret itineraries. For example the popular ones, the carnival ones and the romantic ones. I've worked in the Erotic Art Museum and I've collected some objects that are now part of my home deco, like a Murano glass dildo. You can ask me to turn your room into a comfortable alcova or rent it as your own budoir: this is a very private place, with no neighborhoods.
Venice is vice: not just the world weddings' capital, it's the erotic capital because it's a birthplace of sexual freedom and female emancipation, with an incredible history and tradition of pleasure and tolerance. I'm proud of it like a true Casanova heir, whose memories I like a lot. Of course I'm more gentleman, but sadly still a mainlyman. And I'm seduced by the charming stories of this lustful and licentious city, so it would be hypocritical not to say that I prefer single female travelers, able to appreciate the full emotional tour. Playing Don Giovanni is included for free and for passion, but with quality and profession. Delighting women is my favourite activity: I ensure exciting entertainment. If you're interested contact me whenever, without caring about the availability of dates: this is my only listing for 3 rooms and I can find other nice garconnierés.
