If it’s true that a cultural tour must answer the most traditional questions (how, what, where, when) it’s the value of dailylife experience that gives a touch of magical hapharzardness and which dares to impress the travellers’ minds
Venice and its lagoon – world heritage site – whose name immediately recalls an idea of enigmatic beauty and millennial history that time hasn’t been able to fade in terms of fascination. Venice is an icon that maintains its original urban layout. The typical slow living characterising this city’s life style still catches the eyes of attentive travellers, distracted visitors, artists, illustrious personalities and intellectuals from all over the world. Our tours lead you by hand to discover this city which, for its own alchemic nature, is always in progress but always remains the same.
Conceived for those who are looking for unexpected and unconventional corners and want to familiarize with the curiosities and combinations of history and legend which give life to a peculiar – and sometimes bizarre – urban storytelling.
We want you to become familiar with our local artisans’ faces and hands and their Venetian laboratories. We want you to get involved in the processing techniques of glass and gold making, crochet knitting and wood working. These ancient techniques allow men and women to transform poor material into authentic masterpieces of priceless human value.
Our approach based on the “5 senses” includes your taste too and allows you to experience the food and wine of local enogastronomic tradition whose quality comes from a territory development between earth and sea.
Street photography tours
Sociality and tourism. Does a better formula to combine them exist?
For Stefano Ceretti – professional photographer since 1992 and creator of well-known advertising campaigns such as #feelpeople, #feelstreet, #feelwedding, photography is an excellent means of communication to bring people closer each other and join places to people. His photographic tours are a unique occasion to experience Venice through group photography. Together with him people find new details, choose the right moment, try and try again to shoot from different viewpoints. In a few words, they start being part of the game.
Ceretti’s workshops take place en plein air among Venetian calli and campielli and it’s not confined to his own atelier. These meetings are concrete training opportunities and sharing moments for amateurs, semi-professionals or those who usually shoot with their own smartphone.
Venice is the liquid city par excellence. The city’s magnificence lays on an unstable and mysterious element: water. After all, we’ve just added a couple of bubbles!
The idea of a “sparkling tour” comes after the lucky meeting with the Piedmontese sommelier Edoardo Cibin. Born in 1968, Edoardo is a passionate wine professional who, after having worked for twenty years in high-standing restaurants in northern Italy, decided to dedicate himself esclusively to bubbles. Edoardo’s special sensitivity when offering a selection of unusual wine tasting to the public and his respect for local territories, led him to propose real tasting tours where wine bubbles “rule” and tell stories to palates recalling agreeability or contrasts.
Participating to a sparkling tour creates new awareness: it’s a means to become familar with the city in the most ancient and surprising way.
