My name's Luisella Romeo and I am a registered tourist guide in Venice. I run SeeVenice and offer private and semi-private tours in Venice and to the islands in the Venetian lagoon such as Murano, Burano and Torcello. You can also book walking tours in the city, both orientation tours and itineraries along the off-the-beaten paths. Boat tours with private watertaxi along the canals and guided tours to all museums and churches are also included as well as to temporary art exhibitions.

Luisella conducted a great tour of the Doge and we couldn't have been more delighted. We booked a private tour for 3 people and she was very engaging and informative. She took the time to answer all of our questions and was very thorough. Would highly recommend her!

Luisella was brilliant from start to finish. We had my two teenage children with us and she engaged and entertained them instantly. She is very knowledgeable and well organised and we had a very interesting and enlightening tour. My daughter had a dental problem and Luisella was very helpful in replying to my email questions. I can't recommend her highly... More

My wife and I travelled to Venice in mid-January, and on our first full day booked a half-day tour with Luisella. We typically don't book personal tours, but as it was both of our first time in Venice, we thought it would be a good idea. It was worth every penny. Luisella met us promptly at our hotel on the...

Had 2 x 3hr tours and the time flew. Luisella brought the place alive and animated the history. She was flexible and very happy to alter her standard itinerary to suit us and our interests. Her knowledge of Venetian History, Culture & Art are immense, her English is perfect. I just wish she would be our tour guide in Rome,... More

Thank you for this great review and thank you for choosing Venice on a special occasion!

Luisella was the most important aspect to our time in Venice. Her love of the city and the history shines through with infectious enthusiasm. She is a fabulous story teller and brings the history alive. She was very easy to work with when deciding on an itinerary spread out over several days. Always prompt with communication. The many five star... More

Grazie, this is just a great review, so rewarding :) How can't you love Venice? Maybe because you end up in crowded streets or areas where locals avoid to go... Venice is a city with its fragility that deserves a slow pace and then you can't but love it! Looking forward to sharing more enthusiasm with you on a next... More

My wife, four children (17, 14, 11, 8) and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Luisella! We chose a one hour orientation tour followed by a two hour tour of St. Mark's square, Basilica di San Marco, and Doges' Palace. The entire experience was fantastic. Luisella was very accommodating with scheduling the tour and arranging payment. As for the tours... More

Grazie, thank you for this beautiful review! Loved being with you all!

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
