In Venice gardens are by definition private places, extra rooms to the palazzi. The Venetian garden, like many another bordered and contained space, is a site for theater, grace, secrecy, and erudite or worldly conversations, as well as a place where the natural world metamorphoses into a controlled environment. Tudy Sammartini brings an intimate, affectionate, and involved awareness of the very special qualities of Venice.

Tudy is no longer guilding, her son met us. While personable and friendly, he doesn't have the knowledge of gardens. We went to two, and I have to say I knew more about the plants than he did. I would suggest you look for a different guide, or make arrangements to visit on your own. The Fortuny garden is beautiful... More

Gardens grow and become older. Old lady is a living monument at Venice and about history of Venice but she is not for ordinary guiding any more. She has prefect knowledge but no empathy for people walking behind her. She can change from one garden to another, she can shorten her guiding, she can take a cup of coffee during... More

This is painful to even share this post, but I feel I would be remiss if I didn't. Tudy is lovely with credentials that are probably a mile long. She has had incredible life experiences that would likely put most of us to the test. That said, at 70E each, she took us on the water taxi with no paid... More

Mariagrazia Dammicco knows all the secret gardens of Venice and took us on a fantatic behind the scenes tour. I tried posting this before with her number and it wouldn't post. So maybe you can search for her contact info by her name. It's worth searching for her!

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighbourhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
