 Friendinvenice, how to experience the true Venice, private tour

star-5
35
The best parts of Venice are always the secret and inespected ones. In my opinion in fact, "traveling" means "discovering". Travelers should therefore feel a constant urge to learn new things and see ... "more". In Venice, they would try to discover the whole city and live it at fullest. They would have to look at customs and traditions, support the arts and crafts, taste the local food ... in short, they would have fun. And in doing so, but also the emotions felt (and the eyes of those who led them). I would like to show you off-the-beaten-path, discovering the mysterious, the hidden corners of Venice which is not JUST St. Mark's Square: it's ALSO St. Mark's Square . I look forward to meeting you! Nadia, your "Friend in Venice"

The short time generally allowed to cruise passengers to go ashore as their ship is in the harbor, would seem incompatible with the philosophy of the “traveler”. One would think that short time inevitably means haste, forcing shore excursionists to dash through the city as hasty “tourists”… well, that is not true! You can visit Venice like a local even with little time available: you only need a “Friend” by your side!Please let a real Venetian welcome you and accompany you to your chosen destination, in the easiest and quickest way. Let me introduce you to this city, providing you with the best information to appreciate it at fullest, as well as tips on how to move, where to eat, where to shop etc. A shore excursion in Venice is not complete without Saint Mark’s Square, I know, but let us get there through the less touristic routes, those that your travel companions will certainly miss by jumping immediately on the shuttle or blindly following the yellow signs around. Be Venetian !

Private Dolomites Day Trip from Venice by mercedes Viano
"Until our dying day we will remember this extraordinary Tour planned expertly by Giordana Losi of Top Venice. |We were collected in the morning from our Venice Hotel by Marco, our knowledgable, experienced and very affable photographer-guide and driven directly to the Giau Pass via the beautiful town of Cortina d'Ampezzo. Before taking the Alverau chairlift, we stopped at many view points to take photographs. |As we rose up in our open chairlifts, we saw the littered remains of the Dolomites. As Marco explained, the Dolomites have not always been mountains but have in fact emerged from an ancient sea. This became clear to us once the chairlift deposited us off and we walked down towards the breath taking formations of the Cinque Torri. |Tectonic activity has broken up the Dolomite region into many sectors, raising or lowering them and creating unusual shapes like peaks, towers, needles, pinnacles- seeing the Cinque Torri rise up like the teeth of some ancient beast, clearly evidenced this fact.|Whilst we walked amongst the majestic Dolomites with Marco by our side, capturing us on his camera and turning our every step into memories, we were aware that we were in fact treading on a living landscape which breathes, moves and changes all the time. |Whilst in the Cinque Torri area we were fortunate to dine at two uber restaurants- Rifugio Averau Hutte as you exit the Alverau chair lift and Rifugio Scoiattoli with a glorious view of the Cinque Torri. At the former restaurant we had exclusive locally sourced appetizers with wine, very kindly orgainsed by Giordana as a surprise for our famiily, at the latter we had a delicious lunch made with local produce. |The Dolomites area is home to the Ladin people, who speak a unique language and have a blend of Italian and Austrian culture. Many of them work at the chair lifts and restaurants and it's fascinating to interact with them. |It is little wonder then that we were very reluctant to board the final chairlift and descend into the Falzarego Pass where our driver was waiting to whisk us back to our Venice Hotel.|Top Venice offers many different and exciting itineraries for the Dolomites depending on individual interests. Our brief to Giordana was that we wanted an entirely immersive experience. We wanted to spend the day amongst them, surrounded by them, completely away from civilization. Giordana ensured we got exactly what we asked for. |Save the local Ladin people and serious hikers and climbers, we were the only tourists in the area who had just come to enjoy and soak in the scenery of this World Heritage Site. Being photographed by the very talented Marco amidst and with these ancient wonders as a backdrop, having him capture us with the living Dolomites for all eternity, well was the icing on the cake!|Felicia Variava Albert, Managing Director, Blaze Tours and Travels Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai, India"..."
