Join Andrea for an unforgettable walk in one of the most iconic places in the world and see why Napoleon called it "the finest drawing room in Europe". St Mark's Square, or Piazza San Marco in Italian, is the most iconic square in Venice and also marks the stop on Andrea's tour "The Beauty and Mystery of Venice". The most famous buildings of the city are concentrated in this area: the Doge’s Palace, the Basilica of San Marco, the Tower Bell, and the Bridge of Sighs. If that's not enough for you, then we will also see Caffè Florian, the oldest Cafè in the world, discover the symbols of the Clock Tower, and learn the story of the two big columns in front of the lagoon!
Besides been a licensed tour guide and a freelance journalist, I’m a musician, playing with the most popular reggae singer in my country (who by the way doesn’t sing in Italian, or in English, but in Venetian dialect, never heard of Venetian reggae?) . A 40 years experience on the stage helps me a lot during the tours, because the tour for me it’s like a show, with its climax and anticlimax. Above all anyway, I'm a real Venetian, born and raised in the city. I like therefore to share with passion and my knowledge of this unique city, mixing in my strolling along the city information, fun facts, personal experiences that I think help you to enjoy a unique tour. I’m one of the “eldest” guide on this platform, because when it started there were just three destinations, including mine. I liked a lot the idea of running virtual tours when everything was blocked, but when John and Liam involved me in June 2020, I couldn’t imagine how big this community could have grown, and I’m really proud to be part of it since the beginning.
Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Venice with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.
The tour will last about 30 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from Venice. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!
While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your content creator and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.
We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.
The majority of your tip goes directly to support the channel, while the rest helps Heygo continue to build a place that brings the world closer together.
Reserve your spot by selecting a time to book. Once done, you’ll be able to see your reservations on your Trips page and we’ll send you an email confirmation with a link to join the tour.

I have enjoyed 2 of Andrea’s tours. I LOVED the movie tour. I saw parts of Venice I had missed on my numerous trips there. Andrea was so personable and fun! I will sign up for every one of his tours. I am a FAN!!!
