About me
I am Neapolitan by birth and by heart, but a piece of my heart is now dedicated to Venice. I moved here to study a master’s degree in tourism, and when I finished my studies last autumn, I decided to stay here and work in the Venetian Tourism space. Of course I am homesick, The Veneto region is so different from the region I come from. North Italy, for those coming from the South, represents the cold, the fog, no sun ,no real pizza, no golden beach with crystal clear water. In these years I have learned to fight against these stereotypes.

Why Venice
While rushing to take a selfie on Rialto Bridge or paying extortionate prices for a gondola ride, you are experiencing a tiny sliver of what the city has to offer, because there is an absence of real Venetian life in this standard package holiday.

I want to share with you my favourite hidden spot and alternative things to do in Venice, so you can experience the living city behind the crowded attractions.

Where else can you find me online?
