"Allora" Venice train station 6.30am and we meet Stefano. "We need to get to the bridge as the sunrise will be wonderful" he says and we follow him quickly. Several hours and many pictures later we say good bye having seen Venice wake up and...More
We are a family of four and the day before we left Venice, we booked an hour's photo shoot with Simone, on an impulse. We were unsure about it closer to the time of the shoot, but it turned out to be one of the...More
We actually scheduled a 3-hour walk for the early morning for two of us and 2 hours in the evening with our spouses. Simone was terrific at both. In the morning, he planned an approach that moved us from place to place to take advantage...More
My wife and I spent 3 amazing hours with Stefano walking the streets of Venice. My wife is the photographer and I was there as an extra but I got just as much out of it as my wife. It was a great way to...More
Allora! We joined Stefano Mazzola for a guided photo walk around Venice, it was very relaxed, very informative and Stefano has a great sense of humour. The service and attention was impeccable, I had lost my camera’s eye cup the day of the tour and...More
We had a walking photo tour of Siena with Marco Llorca. Not only did he show us a completely different view of a city we had seen several times before, but in a matter of a few hours changed and improved the way we take...More
When our original photo tour guide became ill, Simone stepped in to take our tour. What an excellent guide he was, too! His passion for Venice and its craftsmen is engaging, and he is a kind and patient teacher. We went off the beaten path...More
Simone is a great guide, great teacher and just a very nice fellow. Simone took us through both typical photo opportunities as well as less iconic but no less beautiful areas of Venice. He has extensive knowledge of the local culture and was able to...More
This review is a bit late as we visited Venice in Mid April of 2018. We had an amazing photo walking tour with Stefano around Venice. We not only took beautiful pictures of the city, he also shared his knowledge of the city with us....More
Super nice guy, very passionate, he knows Venice. He has great stories, his English was fantastic and the best part—-he sent us beautiful family pictures the next day of our tour with him! He taught me lots about my iPhone and taking good pics in...More
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
