The Venetian offer jungle

Do you know that moment? You’re planning your holiday … let’s say … in Venice and start with a basic research to understand how the public transport is working, where the laguna is exactly located, which accommodation to choose (in Venice city center or Mestre) and, last but not least, where to find a good restaurant?

As I realized after a few stays of family members here in Venice that the first-time-orientation in Venice is pretty difficult –

– I decided to create this site.

Finding his/her way through the Venetian offer jungle is nearly impossible: From the MuseumPass to the Vaporetto dell’Arte (not existing any more) and even the new VeneziaUnica (for sale since September 2013).

How this blog will help you

My objective is to give you an overview on activities and attractions in Venice: attractions for children, attractions for travellers on a budget, Venetian legends and a Venice off the beaten path.

You will save precious time and avoid the clicking-through-1000-sites-experience. Venetian gastronomic specialties too (like cicchetti and ombra) won’t be missing.

Do you need a tour leader?

In case you’re already planning your stay here in Venice and need someone to show you around the city: Here I am, your personal certified tour leader (English and German)!

„Sirenissima? There’s a typo!“

No, no typo. 😉 When I thought about a name for this site, I found this beautiful citation by Jean Cocteau:

Sirenissima LogoThe association of Venice, the Serenissima, with a mermaid – as there are numerous venetian legends where mermaids play a decisive role (cf. merletti of Burano) – pleased me so much that I decided to adopt the pun „Sirenissima“.
