“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.”

Kay. R, via email after a costum made and bead making experience
“Both experiences were perfect!  Water taxi tour was exactly as we had hoped – an excellent way to tour Venice overall.  Bead making was terrific – the guy you paired us with has a good personality for that sort of thing – very patient – and surprisingly my husband and stepson enjoyed it a lot so I am glad we included the four of us together.
Thank you so much for helping us experience Venice and I wish you good fortune in your business!”

 I took the “Discover the Hidden Venice with a Born Venetian” tour with Barnaba, the brother of Sebastian. Barnaba is a wonderful guide and knows a lot about Venice. I especially enjoyed his pointing out various little curiosities as we walked around the less populated areas on Venice. I highly recommend this experience for anyone or if you prefer to do another tour experience through Venezia Autentica. I am so happy to support this organization who does so many great things for Venice.

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.

 We did a 2 hour Off The Beaten Path tour today with Barnaba and it was a fantastic experience. Our group of 5 included two little girls and we got to explore the more quiet areas of Venice, learn about the history of the republic (and find some great gelato too!). Our guide was patient with our kids and their need to stop frequently for a break, while allowing us to ask questions about life in Venice today. We are so glad we did this tour.
