I was rewarded by the City of Venice and its ancient cultural association "St. Mark's knights" for "Informative Merits of the Venetian culture" in December 2014. I have two degrees in History and Art History.
I am a licensed and passionate Tour Leader of this one and only lagoon, Venice ( Italy), the city I love! I have been leading tours for years and my love for it remains strong. I still have to share so much with my guests: experiences of my life, my passion for history and art, the real love for my country.
That's why my tours are always private, personalized, engaging and fun! I'm a local expert who wants you to experience Venice and its beauty in the most unique and unforgettable way ever.

Far from the Venice of the Doges you will discover our last "local city", the meeting points for young Venetians such as Ormesini and Misericordia, the Rialto fish market and much more... where everything is still like decades ago when Venetians led their lives on water surrounded by the millenary beauty of the palaces built by Our ancestors.
We will visit one of the most important Italian squares ... that of Piazza San Marco, we will pass over bridges, through alleyways and along the numerous canals, among the most secret and hidden, completely unknown to the thousands of strangers strolling through this unique lagoon every day.

A great tour of Venice!
for Andrea Paolo’s tour (Panoramic Tour)
I took Andrea Paolo’s tour of historic Venice and he was great! I had a really fun time walking the streets with him while he told me how Venice came to be. He is incredibly knowledgeable about his city and has a story for every building church and waterway. He even knows what stories the graffiti is telling on the walls. Along the tour you are regaled with stories of Venice and how it has changed through its history.
I loved the fact that it was so personal and important to him. If you want to see and hear about the real Venice, take his tour. You won’t be disappointed!

Excursion cancelled without notice - Still waiting for refund 3 weeks after
for Andrea Paolo’s tour (Murano, Burano and Torcello)
I booked the boat tour to the Islands and my booking was confirmed by email, with the date, time + meeting point. When I arrived at the meeting point, there was no one. I called and was told that my excursion had been cancelled by mistake and rescheduled the following day, As I was in Venice for work and only had one free day, I was crished because I was not available to reschedule. I was offered a full refund and a free walking tour, in compensation of the cancelled boat tour. Though the evening walk tour was very nice, I am still waiting for the refund that was promised and I have been told that due to the absence of response of the client assistance at Like a Local, I cannot be paid back. I don't know if this is an excuse not to pay me back or if it's true, but in any case the situation is very frustrating and I do not recommend to book tours with this provider.
