Tour Details

Venice the city of love and romance! In the past backdrop for beautiful and secret lesbian loves. Together we will go off the beaten path, not only to discover a more authentic city; but also to uncover the lives of some extraordinary Venetian women. From the fictional love between Portia and Nerissa in the Merchant of Venice, to the example of women who stepped outside societal norms and rejected conventional feminine appearance. Venice has a strong queer side that we will unveil together!

What to Expect

We start our tour from Campo S. Giacomo di Rialto, where female prostitution concentrated. This is the place where famous courtesans and  poetesses, such as Veronica Franco, lived.

Visit the Rialto Bridge, enjoy its amazing view on the Grand Canal and head to the house of the first-graduated woman in the world, Eleonora Cornaro.  Walk on side ‘calli’ and ‘campielli’ and reach the Bovolo Steps.You cannot miss the view of Venice from above. Proceed to Santa Maria del Giglio and change perspective: enjoy Venice from the water on a gondola ferry-boat. Here, you see the magnificent palaces where Eleonora Duse, famous theatre actress in the early 20th century, Winaretta Singer and Peggy Guggenheim used to meet people and have parties. After getting off the gondola ferry-boat, walk to the ‘Sestriere di Dorsoduro’  (the word ‘sestriere’ refers to one of the six parts in which towns used to be divided for urbanistic reasons). Here, you find a number of art galleries and many lgbtq+ friendly /owned business. Before we say goodbye, we will toast  to the Venetian ladies with a glass of prosecco wine in a typical winery.
