Our guides in Venice help you get under the skin of the city and most importantly away from the crowds. She knows all the private workshops that are strictly closed to the public including those of the most famous producers of masks, gondolas and brocades.

For an unforgettable visit, let BESPOQE 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.

But Venice is also surrounded by other great places: stretching from the western shore of Lake Garda, embracing the art cities of Verona and Vicenza and the foothills of the Dolomites, with a sprinkling of Palladian villas and Prosecco vines in between, the region remains remarkably, and blissfully, free of visitors.

Culturally rich, Verona is alive with superb restaurants and unique designers. We love it at any time of the year but especially in the summer when the opera is in full swing in the Arena, the Roman amphitheater.

Furthermore, we know several friends who live in some of Palladio’s most exquisite villas: a day spent driving through the countryside of the Veneto, lunching with one owner and walking through the world-famous gardens of another is an unforgettable experience.
