    Despite the HEAT, we had a wonderful day in Venice. Tentiana (gentian in Italian, don't know if it's spelled correctly) greeted us nicely and asked us what we wanted. She also explained everything that was child-friendly for our son. Then she brought us to the departure point of the gondola. 2 hours are enough for that, lots of impressions and stories.

    A special tour! Individual, tailored to our personal wishes and with a lot of information and background knowledge that did not correspond to the conventional cliché. Perfect!

    Nice walk to get to know Venice from the inside through someone who lives and loves that city.
