Are you ready to see Venice from a particular and unique point of view, that of film directors like Steven Spielberg, Woody Allen, Ron Howard who have chosen the timeless city and the lagoon as a location for their famous movies? Unmatched beauty and iconic landmarks of Venice have attracted filmmakers from around the world, who used the complicated but original setting of the city for romantic comedies, thrillers, and strangely, above all, for action movies. Follow in the footsteps of your favorite characters as James Bond (“From Russia with love”, “Moonraker”, “Casino Royale”) or Indiana Jones (“Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”) and actors like Johnny Deep (“The Tourist”), Donald Sutherland (“Don’t look now”, “The Italian Job”), Katherine Hepburn (“Summertime”), Heath Ledger (“Casanova”). Starting from Campo San Rocco, in front of the amazing “Scuola Granda”, walking until the Accademia Bridge and the Grand Canal, we will visit some locations that have inspired renowned movies and see the actual clips on my tablet in order to compare fiction and reality.
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.

Andrea found a unique way to show us his city tonight. He took us to places where different films were made, and then showed us the film clips! Brilliant!!! Andrea is a fantastic tour guide, especially when showing his home city of Venice. It is a wonderful place, and Andrea makes the tour both authentic and unique, even to those of us who thought we knew the place well!
