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

How do I go about arranging a private garden tour while we are in Venice around Oct 10-12th. Can we walk? How many gardens could we see in a 4 hour period? How would we meet our tour guide? How much would it cost?
