For an unforgettable visit to Venice, let Bellini Travel arrange a private visit to St Mark’s Basilica as dusk falls and the golden mosaics are softly illuminated. Or have dinner with your friends in a palazzo overlooking the Grand Canal after visiting some of the hidden gardens and privately owned palaces in the lagoon known only to the Venetians and to us.

Our guides in Venice help you get under the skin of the city and most importantly away from the crowds. Cristina knows all the private workshops that are strictly closed to the public including those of the most famous producers of velvets and brocades: Gucci and Cavalli are clients as well as historic palaces and interior designers worldwide.

Despite its glorious past, Venice is a thoroughly modern city which buzzes with life during the art and architectural Biennales. Not only can we arrange access to the most exclusive parties during vernissage but also studio appointments with many of the artists living and working in the city.
