What people are saying about Campo San Polo

Elena was wonderful! It was so nice seeing the from a tour guide who’s ancestors were from Venice, and all of her stories were so much more interesting because they were personal growing up there in Venice. She was so nice and accommodating anything, and everything we needed. We couldn’t have asked for anything better! I would definitely recommend the tour and especially Elena!
