We are a group of friends, born and raised in Venice, passionate about our city
and professionals in vacation rentals and co-hosting.
This diary is addressed to travellers not to tourists, because this is how we like to feel
when we visit other places around the world.
We are an independent voice. This means that we do not receive any fees from the food places,
shops, professionals and events we describe in our posts.
For this reason it would be important to receive a feedback from the readers who experience something we suggest.
