Join me on a fascinating walk that will take youth see the gardens of the Biennale, the areas where the people from the region Friuli venezia Giulia used to live. We will walk over the area of Via Garibaldi the most lively street in town .. we will be ending up with the view over the church of St Pietro in Castello and the walls of the Arsenal. The unconventional Venice is on the way.
I’m Igor (that’s pronounced ee-gor, in case you are wondering!) and although you may not think it’s an Italian name, I am 100% Italian. I grew up in this area, between Treviso and Venice and I’m incredibly passionate about my region and 2 cities. I studied tourism, in Italy we have a special type of high school dedicated to tourism, and languages and I have been working in this sector since I graduated. I started in a hotel near Venice, then moved to one in London, which was an amazing experience. When I came back to Italy, I moved to with Globus and travelled all over Europe, from Portugal to Russia and the North Cape to Greece. Seeing so many places was great and I learned a lot meeting people from all over the world. In 2007, my grand tour ended, and I came home to Venice, where I qualified to work as a guide in the Veneto region (yes, in Italy you need a licence to work as a guide). I love taking my guests around this wonderful region, showing them all the fantastic treasures we have here. Whether you would like a tour of Venice, or a tailored, escorted experience with hotels, transfers and visits, let me be your Venetian expert! If you have questions you’d like answered or have no idea where to start planning your trip, get in touch with me and I will help you with suggestions, hints and bookings. I’ve been listed in Rick Steves’ guides to Venice, Italy and Europe since 2008, so I must be doing something right.

Igor was a great host, full of charming historical anecdotes and good humour! He made me miss Italy, but also enjoy my memories of how loving and warm and funny the people are. I felt like I was wandering through the streets with a friend.

Loved the gentle pace of Igor's tour, it felt like a walk with a friend. Nice to see parts of Venice that not too many folk go to. Its on my next visit to Venice.
