Geografismi was created to welcome tourists and prove that people can respect Venice and its fragile nature. Our routes will take you far from mass tourist attractions and will tell you thousand-year-old stories.
Geografismi shows the city through different and enthralling thematic readings: for a thousand years, Venice has been standing at the crossroads of different stories, which are now the landmarks on our routes, offering alternative perspectives.
Geografismi will accompany you all day long, but it has been conceived so as to let you discover more on the theme you’ve chosen on the days following your visit, too. We’ll show you the way, then let Venice itself talk to you.
