Born and raised in Venice, I ventured far and wide, getting 'germanised' in Bochum and Göttingen, absorbing the post-Olympic vibrance in Turin, getting drunk in the worst bars in Moscow, tracing the historic Silk Road in Central Asia, indulging in Berlin's pulsating club scene, and engaging in the corporate world as a manager in the construction equipment industry across Africa and the Middle East. Back in Venice since 2018, I'm currently pursuing a second degree in Art History, sharing the city's rich heritage with a passion. With over 1000 full-star reviews, my aim is to ensure every visitor experiences the enchanting magic and timeless charm of Venice. Today, I am a tour guide in Venice and I'm excited to share my profound love for this city, commitment to sustainable tourism, and insider tips as a local guide.
