During our Free Walk in Venice travellers use to take lots of pic of  laudry, we suppose because until that moment it's something they haven't seen very often at home.

But it's not just "laudry" it's the way we usw to dry it that you love! Not having a clothes dryer we develop a knowledge about the weather and its capacity to dry garments that you can't imagine !

Looking out the window during the morning we can easily understand if today is the welcome "Laundry day!".

The perfect day is a sunny one, less humidity, a certain kind of breeze not so strong but steady!

 

If you want to know more attend our free tour "Free walk in Venice!" :)

We believe in fairness and our mission is to make you feel at ease during your stay.

This is why we promote only Venetian cuisine giving you the best tips about it and providing information about the best ways to transportation and to choose tickets to museum and various attractions.

We don’t believe in boredom and this is why we love interaction and exchange with our guests for a nice and relaxing walk speaking about the most curious and hidden aspects of the city.

- THE DEVELOPMENT OF CONTACTS AND COOPERATION BETWEEN PEOPLE.
- HELPING PEOPLE TO SAVE MONEY AND TIME DURING THEIR STAY

 

If you have three full days to explore Venice, you encountered a delight you’d never read about in any of the many accounts of the city’s history you’d perused, a wonderful legacy of the craft workers who built the city!

Apparently the masons who built Venice brick by brick took special delight in adding a unique fillip to the designs of some of the greatest architects of the age, literally crowning their creations with an extravagant array of chimneys, each unique in its own way.

Venice has about 7,000 chimneys! The chimneys — from the funnel-shaped to those that resemble a twisted pasta noodle — come in 10 different styles. If you’re wondering why anyone would count them all, it’s because they’re part of Venice’s fascinating architectural heritage…could be possible to make a walking tour just to search them!

A distinct architectural characteristic of Venice is found in its chimneys. Try walking around Venice with your nose in the air and you will see an intriguing skyline, punctuated by chimneys of various strange sizes and shapes. These are the same chimneys that can be seen in paintings by Carpaccio and Canaletto among others, and form a vital element of this incredible city’s character, topping off the elegant palaces like so many party hats. There is a practical reason for their odd shapes, however. Their peculiar forms prevent the escape of sparks into the air by whirling them around their inner walls until they fall, spent, to a collecting space at the base of the chimney. A necessary measure in a city that uses abundant amounts of wood in its palazzi!
