We had a wonderful time learning all about the rich history of Venice with Francesca. She was a fantastic tour guide and she gave us great insight into life in Venice. She taught us about both when it was a Republic, and life in Venice today. During our entire trip to Italy, Francesca was our best tour guide. The Gondola ride was great, being on the Grand Canal in a Gondola was spectacular. LivItaly took great care of us once again, and they always have great customer service. We are extremely pleased that we booked our tours with them.
