This was my second workshop with Arved. I learned so much on the first one both about Venice and improving my photography. When I returned to Venice in April 2015 I booked another workshop and it was just as good as the first, Arved took me to new locations and I learned another whole set of photography skills - he...

This was a trip of a lifetime as my mother and I toured Italy and Istanbul during November 2014. So, given all the rave reviews, I booked the tour with Arved about a year in advance and the experience was worth the wait! Arved showed us the city in the most beautiful light and our photos are without doubt professional... More

I came to Venice mid December 2014 with some expectations, having read the extremely fine comments about Arved, brought forward by those many people having already made similar arrangements with him. I dare say that I was in no way disappointed, on the contrary. His knowledge about photography is indeed comprehensive and very deep-going - one feels it immediately when... More

It's been a while since my tour with Arved, but everytime I think of Venice, I think about this photo tour! It's an absolutely unforgettable way to see the city's main attractions as well as quite streets only known to locals. Arved is great company and 100% worth the price! If I ever go to Venice again, I'll definitely be... More

Absolutely fantastic. The whole experience a ten! From somehow overpaying to Arved telling me I overpaid and then refunding some money to Arved buying coffee for us!

Joined photo tour with Arved in February for an afternoon session as well as the sunrise rise session. For the first one we went through the alleys in the Venice and for sure any ordinary tourist will not walk through.

On our recent trip to Venice my wife bought me a few hours with Arved, and now there is no excuse for taking any dodgy photos. What a wonderful and insightful experience. We met Arved at the un-touristy time of 5.20am. This ensured an empty St Mark's Square (free of pigeons and other tourists!) and also that wonderful pre-dawn light.... More

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
