Virtual Tours in Venice

While you might not be able to travel to Venice, would you like to connect with an experienced local guide at this extraordinary time? I’ve designed these virtual tours of Venice to transport you from your home to the Doge’s Palace, the golden basilica and the now magically serene lagoon. Through these convivial interactive webinars we’ll explore the city’s stories and history and discuss what the future might bring. So, why not grab a glass of prosecco (or a strong Italian caffé) and join me in these small group salons.
