We had a great time Davide knowledge obviously far surpassed the topic of the tour (Plague in Venice) which while niche was exactly what we wanted, but we left with a greater understanding of the history of Venice as a whole while touring Dorsoduro-next time we are in Venice we will be asking for a tour led by Davide again!
This walk was very unique; we loved our guide...she had a great attitude, was very smart and extremely well educated. She was shy but with a good sense of humor and was able to bring many things into context with regard to the impact of the Plague on the culture and development of Venice. One thing it I learned from another guided tour, was to place what was happening then in Venice with what we might recognize was happening in other parts of the world, to place it in a broader perspective, as a suggestion. I am sure that would be easy given our guide's intellect and knowledge.
Nadia was deeply knowledgeable about everything to do with Venice: history; society; art; and of course the impact of the plagues.
