Það sem verður gert

During our walk through Venice, through narrow alleyways, into hidden courtyards, I'll explain all the little messages the past has left us in the stones of Venice, much of which, while in plain sight, remains unseen by the most.

Through these messages we'll talk about many of the major themes of the history of Venice: trade and seafaring, cultural connections to Byzantium and the Arab world, wars and crusades, the plague, ancient crafts and skills, and daily life in the past.
Other things to note
The meeting place is within easy walking distance from Rialto, San Marco and Fondamente Nove.

Follow the signs for "Ospedale" to find the square.

I have ten years experience showing people a Venice which goes far beyond the guide books.

Venice is steeped in ancient history, it is all over the city, but most people don't notice it. A trained eye can read the stones, and find stories of ancient seafaring, crusades and wars, trade routes to Byzantium, medieval social welfare, long forgotten crafts and much much more.

I have a M.A. in History and Italian, and I'm a certified Tour Leader in English, Italian and Danish.

Though I'm Danish by birth, I have spent most of my life in Italy. I now live in Venice with my Venetian wife and family.

René è molto appassionato e ci ha lasciato arricchiti di nuove nozioni ed entusiasmo! Non guarderemo più Venezia con gli stessi occhi !

We did this tour on our first morning in Venice and I highly recommend that. You’ll be ready with so much more awareness of what there is to see here. René, an historian, explains about how to really see all that is there to see in Venice. “Hidden Venice”, but hidden in a way that is often surprising and fascinating. There were a number of times over our 5 days in Venice that we said “oh look, that’s what René told us about!” This tour will add depth to your delight of this magical city.

Tour guidato diverso da solito. L’esperienza ha rispettato quanto descritto con note simpatiche e appassionanti, coinvolgendoci con aneddoti personali. Abbiamo scoperto una Venezia che non conoscevamo e la storia di questa città che spesso non viene enfatizzata.

Ottimo per chi desidera conoscere in maniere seria ed approfondita la storia di Venezia con sguardo attento ai piccoli dettagli e alle curiosità...

René is very knowledgeable about Venice and its history. However, I left frustrated. The first hour of the tour we stood in front of the statue at Giovanni e Paolo square and got a little too in-depth with the history. When we started the walking portion, we spent another hour just in the small square, and it was already noon. The tour ran an additional hour over and we made it only about 500m, stopping often to hear about something small. A 30-second information stop turned into a 15-minute lesson. The history is nice and the tour concept is not bad, but I was disappointed I didn't get to see more of Venice.
