I have been to Venice many times, and have never taken an official tour of the city. Well, I wish I had done so a very long time ago. Barbar took us to places we would have never gone. We are walkers and she was...More
Barbara exceeded our expectations in every way. She arrived with a smile and immediately took to our children, guiding us through a spectacular view of her Venice. From the scent-sational market, to the views from within the Doges Palace, to the lagoon and the islands...More
Myself, 2 teenage daughters and my 22 year old nephew thoroughly enjoyed our introduction and tour of Venice thanks to Barbara Tasca. We had 3 separate tours over 3 days and through Barbara we got to see the best of Venice and learned so much....More
I searched for children friendly tours, and Barbara exceeded my expectations! Not only did I learn so so much, the children were completely attentive and in awe of Barbara for 3 hours. It takes a lot for someone to hold the interest of two 9...More
Barbara was absolutely wonderful! We booked her last minute to give us a private 2 hour tour of San Marco and Doge's Palace. She was prompt, smart, extremely well-informed, funny, and kind. As we finished, our only wish was that we had more days on...More

Barbara was a wonderful tour guide. She was extremely responsive to our emails and setting up our tour was a breeze. She has great sense of humor and makes the tour fun. After touring Doge’s Palace and St. Marks (when the lights were on-gorgeous), Barbara...More
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
