About the tour

Without wishing to spoil a classic tale, this tour starts at the house of a very special woman. Who you may ask? Well we'll be going to see the house of the woman who William Shakespeare used as a muse for Desdemona in his famous play Othello, the Moor of Venice. From there, Andrea will take us to unearth the secrets of a church built based on Kabbalah, which is an esoteric method, discipline, and school of thought in Jewish mysticism. To top off this properly mystifying experience, we'll venture to the most cursed palace along the Grand Canal, which is reported to have brought about the death of many of its owners.

Meet Andrea


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.
