We are indeed tour guides but first we are travelers. We understand there might be last minute unforeseen circumstances that might cause a change of plans. When we sat down to write our cancellation policy we decided to think to what Cancellation Policy we would like to have for ourselves for our trips.

Venice is universally considered the most beautiful city in the world, thanks to its unusual urban design and its inestimable artistic heritage that has it included in the heritage of humanity projects protected by UNESCO.

Enjoy a panoramic walking tour with your knowledgeable licensed guide and explore the area between Piazza San Marco Rialto Bridge, including their labyrinth of little canals and sites of interest, including entrance to the Palazzo Ducale. You will be enchanted by the glorious tales of the “Serenissima Republic” along with the imagery of the most important Venetian artists, Bellini, Titian, Veronese, and Tiepolo.

This is the perfect tour for those who come to Venice for the first time: learn about the winged lion, the story of St Mark being brought to Venice from Egypt, his “golden church”, and then Theodore, killing a dragon, and, of course, when, how and why the Venetians have built a city on hundreds of thousands of wooden poles stuck in the mud of its lagoon. You will visit St Mark’s square and end at the Rialto bridge on the Grand Canal. By the end of the tour, you will understand the everyday life in the city, its problems, what it's like to live in such a city, especially when “high water” strikes, you'll learn how people protect the city and the lagoon.

    I didn't know there were differences between the cities in terms of their 'signature style' of pizzas! I'm going to be visiting Venice soon, does anyone know what the pizza looks like there?

    Hello Jessica! 

    As Emiliano explained, generally the pizzas up north are thinner but not as thin as they are in Rome (they're all equally delicious, though)! The portions of the pizzas in Venice tend to be on the smaller side whereas in Rome the classic pizza is served on a grander scale. Although pizza isn't the dish that the Venetians are best known for, you may be able to find some specialty sea food toppings! We've included a picture for you to get an idea of what they look like in Venice as well as a link of the top pizza places in the city:

    https://foursquare.com/top-places/venice/best-places-pizza

     



    We hope that this info has helped! If you're able to make it to Rome too we wrote an article about the best pizzas in Rome and where to find them.

    Enjoy your time in Venice and thanks for your interest!

  • Ciao Jessica,

    you can try to go for a CALZONE rather than a Pizza if that does not fully convince you in Venice. 

    Calzoni are folded pizzas and in my opinion they differ a little less than pizzas from north to south. They can vary in their toppings but most of them have ricotta cheese inside which is a typical italian cheese made from sheep, goat or cow milk.

    In Italian calzone means literally "trousers" as they seem to look like pant legs.

    I am not a big fan of ricotta but the calzone is definitely worth a try.
