My wife booked a three hour photo walk with Marco, during our visit to Venice during Carnivale. On my scheduled morning, it was a cloudy and overcast day. I was not expecting to get many good shots. Was I wrong! Marco was fantastic! As someone who has lives in Venice, Marco knows all of the great spots and some amazing... More

We thoroughly recommend Marco's Photo Tour of Venice. Because Marco is an experienced photo-journalist and an outstanding photographer, we were a little unsure about whether or not we would be at the wrong level to enjoy his photo tour. As soon as we met Marco, however, we were quickly reassured and set off from St Mark's Square in the pre-dawn... More

We met Marco VERY early in the morning, and enjoyed a 3 hour walk through the city. The tour was well worth the time (and getting up so early)!! Not only did he take us to some fantastic spots, he also sent me a map to my phone with spots all throughout the city for us to go find. I... More

This was our second trip with Marco. We first went out with him in 2012 and tried to make arrangements with him last year, but couldn't get our schedules to work. This trip, we made sure to arrange our visit early, since we really wanted to get out with him. Our last trip he primarily helped me, but on this... More

My husband and I stayed a few days in Venice prior to our cruise and our photo walk/tour with Marco was marvelous! He communicated with me before our trip to help me make decisions about what to see and do before we met with him also. He was very gracious and met us on time. He showed us places we... More

Marco helped my teenage daughter, who is just getting into photography, to see the different and interesting possibilities for taking photos. Walking around Venice just after the sun came up, discovering hidden views and vistas, not to mention some favourite Venetian coffee and breakfast stops, was a delight.

Traveled to Venice with my wife and another couple this past July. I had read about photo tours and loved the idea but never experienced one. Since we were going to be in Venice 4 days I felt it was the perfect time and place for trying this kind of tour. I knew of no one who'd done this before,... More

What a great choice we made booking Marco for a few hours on the morning of our first day in Venice! Marco has such knowledge of his City and took us off the busy streets, stopping at the best vantage points to take photos. As Marco gave advice and thoughtful assistance to help me take the best shots using my... More

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
