Dolores P. via email after a Mosaic Class
“We had the mosaics class this morning and LOVED it!!
Thank you so much for choosing a very talented woman artist and for offering the class. We would never have discovered the studio — and the learning opportunity — without Venezia Autentica. Grazie mille!!!”

“Many thanks for your help in making the trip a success for all of us, over a huge age range.”
“We booked a walking tour and gondola ride through this site, along with a mosaic class. What a great experience, so glad we found them. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about Venice and it’s history. He walked at our pace… He took us to different areas that were not crowded like the main areas of Venice. We learned so much. The mosaic class was a real treat. The instructors were masters at mosaic, we learned a lot and created our own little mosaic. I would definitely recommend this experience if you plan on visiting Venice in the future. Well worth the money!.”

“We all safely home or heading home and we’re all very pleased with our trip to Venice, the various tours led by Barny and the dinner.”
5* – A really nice and informative tour!
The tour with a born Venetian we liked very much. The meeting place was easy to find and our guide greeted us very warmly. Then it started – away from the busy streets through Cannaregio. We took a wonderfully relaxed walk. Meanwhile, a very informative conversation took place with Barnaba, who gave us a lot of information about the city, the residents and the history. Also anecdotes and superstitions were told. We enjoyed it very much and we are already considering what activity we will book next time.

“It was an excellent experience; Barnaba is a great guide, articulate and informative.
The back streets and canals of Venice is where Venice is…not the mass of humanity of San Marcos.
Venice is a beautiful city and deserves to survive.”
“Hi there!!! My husband and I are on our way back home, but we had such a wonderful time in Italy. We really, REALLY enjoyed the tour with Barnaba. We only had 48 hours in Venice and starting with the tour was the best. He mixed history and sightseeing into the tour, he took us to amazing local places, and the wine he picked out was all amazing.
We had a great walk with Barnaba today. I highly recommend booking an “experience “ with Venezia Autentica. Enjoy what Venezia has to offer and support a wonderful local business with an important mission.
