This website is managed by a licensed tour guide in Venice. Exercising the profession of tour guide without the appropriate license is not permitted by Italian law. Thus, when booking a tour guide in Venice, or anywhere else in Italy, it is your right to ask for proof that he or she holds a valid licence before entering into any agreement. Under present regulations in Italy, as in most European countries, it is strictly forbidden to elicit the services of a tour guide from a different person, such as a teacher, art historian or representative of a cultural association; even if the service has been booked through a travel agent. Therefore, before showing any personal or degree qualifications, your tour guide must be able to prove that he or she possesses an official tour guide licence. Without this, he or she is not permitted to undertake this activity and will be prosecuted. Licensed tour guides are the only professionals permitted to conduct tours in all sites and museums in Italian cities, especially in the city of Venice.
