Barbara

Hi, my name is Barbara and I am a licensed Tour Guide proud to be Venetian! Born and grown up here in Venice, I never stop to learn something new about my city, and this may happen every day. . . For example when I change my way and walk along an unknown 'calle' (alleyway) with a curious name! Believe me it's not an unusual thing for a Venetian too! Think that in Venice there are 400 bridges with 400 different names! But what surprises me more in my job is to see Venice behind itself, the back side of all that is already seen. . . The secrets behind the windows, behind the facades of the palaces! The secrets, the legends enclosed in the names of the calli (alleyways), campi (squares), corti (courtyards). So, join me in this adventure back to the past times, exploring my everyday Venice! About my education: after attending a Foreign Language High School, I graduated in Philosophy at Ca' Foscari University, and thanks to my studies my attitude towards Art is different from the usual one. Later, my passion for Art and for my city encouraged me to become a Guide! - Tour Guide License 243, RA. - Tour Leader License 154, RA. - Member of Guide Turistiche Italiane. - Degree in Philosophy with Honors, Cà Foscari University, Venice. - Venice Port Security Pass 28721 (Venice Port Authority)
