After the big flood in late 2019 and COVID lockdown, Venezia woke up with no tourists and thousands of people unemployed.

Is there any chance to re-imagine the city?
How is the situation now?

Venezia is the most beautiful city in the world but at the same time the most touristic one.
What's behind the postcard of the city?
What's behind the mask?

I want to give you my personal alternative tour about social practices, environmental issues, fighting the power, neighborhood life, squatting, rowing boats, and citizen associations.

We visit hidden sides that you don’t find in guidebooks.
Do not expect to be walking through touristic and mainstream visited places.

In this Unconventional Walking Tour, I show you how Venetian people live and how to survive to mass tourism contradictions in Venezia.
Other things to note

I've been living in Venezia for 12 years. I moved after finishing my studies cause I always wanted to live in a city with no cars.

Every city has to face many challenges to get better quality of life.
I like to be active and do my part for my city.
I support citizen movements struggling for healthier environment.

My aim is to show you how overtourism and bad politics are changing my town into a kind of Disneyland.

I like to share with you what's happening in town right now. Nowadays. Not centuries ago.

I hope you're curious to discover what's behind the postcard .

It is an around 2 hour walk, moreless 4 km.
The itinerary is through S.Croce and Dorsoduro district.
We keep the exact path as a secret so guests can find the unknown city I am willing to show.

Paolo is a very friendly guy, if you want to discover hidden corners of Venice - book this tour! He showed me around Dorsoduro and we went to really nice places in the local community that I wouldn’t have found without him. Recommend!

A truly amazing tour if you want to see and understand Venice through the eyes of the locals. I learned so much about the city and it's struggles. Paolo showed us calm hidden spots, creative stores and business of locals and mostly, he told us their stories and fights for their houses and rights and against overtourism. Thanks to the small groups we were able to ask many questions and Paolo really took his time to share his knowledge and passion about Venice. I can hightly recommend this tour!

Paolo is a very intelligent, affable person. He showed us hidden spots and revealed what life is really like for local Venetians. My husband and I are not a fan of pre-fabricated guided tours, so Paolo's nontraditional "behind the postcard" and honest, human-focused approach was perfect for us. He also gave us excellent recommendations for going out and eating while we were in town. It was a major highlight of our trip! I highly recommend Paolo's experience!

Paulo was passionate about his alternative views of what’s wrong Venice and I can certainly agree with most of them. He’s not overly tolerant of opposing views, but the walk was enjoyable non the less. The real upside for me was the little back stories behind some of the restaurants and stores he pointed out. We actually went back and had lunch at one which was quite superb. We’d have loved to have bought a limo print at another but ran out of time to revisit. This is a fun way to find out about Venice’s revolutionary youth! Good on them! They’ll probably save Venice from sinking...

This is not a classic tour of Venice. Rather a long walk with a friend who’s taking you through small alleys and passages and make you discover his town, what he likes, loves and dislikes too. We’re all tourists, that’s why we here, but we know that in a city like Venice it does have an impact like nowhere else. So it was great to discuss about those issues with an open mind and someone who’s passionate and involved about his city and this kind of subjects. Another way to explore this amazing place... Grazie Mille.

It's a must do. Tolle Führung. Wer etwas über das echte Leben kennenlernen möchte, der sollte unbedingt eine Tour mit Paolo machen. Man sieht Plätze und Straßen, die man sonst wohl eher nicht sehen würde und man hört interessante Geschichten über die Gemeinschaft der Venezianer. Ein tolles Erlebnis.
