An authentic experience to discover Venice!
Ciao from Rossana and Federica!
We’ve been working as registered local guides in Venice for more than ten years and we love what we do like the first day. We like meeting new people from all over the world and we consider ourselves luky having the chance to show not only the highlights of Venice but also its picturesque little alleys from a local’s point of view.

My professional history begins as a travel agent twenty years ago. After getting my degree in Foreign Languages and Literature at the University Ca’ Foscari of Venice, I also passed the examination to become a Travel Assistant. Then, following my independent nature, I decided to “jump desk”, and I quit the office to work freelance.
Yet, being a tour assistant was still not enough yet for me. Since my schooldays, I had never stopped studying the history and the art of Venice, a city I have always been in love with.
In 2007 my dream came true: after years of studying and long preparations, I survived the hard examination given by the Province of Venice and I got my license to be an Official Tourist Guide of Venice!
Now, I am really satisfied with my job which I consider a real privilege as it spurs me to always give my best. Every day, I interpret my city with all the passion I can, meeting interesting people from all over the world and thanks to this continued exchange of ideas and experiences, my life knowledge becomes richer and richer.
I did classical studies and I have a degree with honours in History of Art from Venice University. For someone who loves art as I do, Venice is really the perfect place to study and work! I’ve always wanted to become a tour guide, to be surrounded by beauty and to meet people from all over the world to share it.
In 2002 I proudly passed the exam and I fulfilled my dream, becoming an Official Certified Tourist Guide in Venice!
Now I’ve been working as a tour guide for quite a long time, but I never get tired! Venice never ends to enchant me and being a good updated tour guide is a work in progress. Meeting new people every day, of different countries and different ages, is interesting and stimulating. I love my job: it is not so much a job as it is a passion.
