In Venice gardens are by definition private places, extra rooms to the palazzi. The Venetian garden, like many another bordered and contained space, is a site for theater, grace, secrecy, and erudite or worldly conversations, as well as a place where the natural world metamorphoses into a controlled environment. Tudy Sammartini brings an intimate, affectionate, and involved awareness of the very special qualities of Venice.

Gardens grow and become older. Old lady is a living monument at Venice and about history of Venice but she is not for ordinary guiding any more. She has prefect knowledge but no empathy for people walking behind her. She can change from one garden...More

This is painful to even share this post, but I feel I would be remiss if I didn't. Tudy is lovely with credentials that are probably a mile long. She has had incredible life experiences that would likely put most of us to the test....More

Mariagrazia Dammicco knows all the secret gardens of Venice and took us on a fantatic behind the scenes tour. I tried posting this before with her number and it wouldn't post. So maybe you can search for her contact info by her name. It's worth...More

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
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob

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?
