MeetOurVenice was developed by a group of friends, born and raised in Venice, passionate about their city
and professionals in co-hosting and short-term vacation rentals.
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. 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 essential to receive feedback from the readers who experience something we suggest.
