Into oza kuyenza

During our walk through Venice, through narrow alleyways, into hidden courtyards, I'll explain all the little messages the past has left us in the stones of Venice, much of which, while in plain sight, remains unseen by the most.

Through these messages we'll talk about many of the major themes of the history of Venice: trade and seafaring, cultural connections to Byzantium and the Arab world, wars and crusades, the plague, ancient crafts and skills, and daily life in the past.
Other things to note
The meeting place is within easy walking distance from Rialto, San Marco and Fondamente Nove.

Follow the signs for "Ospedale" to find the square.

I have ten years experience showing people a Venice which goes far beyond the guide books.

Venice is steeped in ancient history, it is all over the city, but most people don't notice it. A trained eye can read the stones, and find stories of ancient seafaring, crusades and wars, trade routes to Byzantium, medieval social welfare, long forgotten crafts and much much more.

I have a M.A. in History and Italian, and I'm a certified Tour Leader in English, Italian and Danish.

Though I'm Danish by birth, I have spent most of my life in Italy. I now live in Venice with my Venetian wife and family.

Can highly recommend this tour if you’re interested in history. René really knows his stuff and is very knowing about both the “big picture” of Venice in the history but also small interesting facts about the everyday life in the city.

Rene has an infinite wealth of information and generously shares his knowledge. He conveys even somewhat dry parts of history in a relatable manner and makes the past come alive. I truly enjoyed the tour and recommend it to anyone interested in learning more of what is beyond of what you see. Rene was very generous with his time and even made sure I got a seat for a good lunch after the tour.

All in All , the Tour was easy , entertaining and educational
