Can anyone tell me how to contact this person to set up the bar tour in Venice for a July visit?
Contact Alessandro either by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by mobile phone (335-530-9024). The tours are offered Wed and Sat at 6 PM, other eenings and off-season by request and with demand. 30 euro per person.
This information was extracted from the Rick Steves Italy 2007 book on page 61.
I did this tour with Alessandro and had a GREAT time. It was one of my favorite things I did in Venice! I tried to do it the next year when I went back, but called a bit too late. The first time I set it up months in advance by email. He took awhile to respond, just so you know, because he waited until other tourists requested the same date as myself. So don't be alarmed if you don't get an immediate response. You can do a bar crawl, I'm sure, by yourself-but he was engaging to talk to and took us to 3 really amazing places. Really, a lot of fun.
I hope that everything works out and that you are able to take the tour, good luck!
I have been trying to contact Allessandro for a number of weeks with no luck. On another site someone said that he was overseas adopting a child and wouldnt be available for awhile. I think I will try to ring him on his mobile when I get to Venice next week. Will advise how I go.
I noted in a previous post that I was in touch with him to see if he was doing a tour the first week of April. I contacted him via the email address listed in the RS book. He said he was going to be out of the country adopting a child, but that was probably mid-March when I had that contact with him. He could be back in July. Good luck!
