Venice is undoubtedly the best place where to get lost, loved or allow to be seduced.
No map of Venice can help a visitor to safely walk around it so isn’t it the best opportunity to solemnly get lost in the city’s labyrinth experiencing a crazy thrill of abandonment and in a snug setting of the stone womb which constitutes the city?
And what other strong emotion, if not love, leads us astray with irrational shiver of abandonment?
In Venice, you can lose yourself on a
dreamlike discovery route of the beautiful and the sublime, and who
would be your best companion if not your lover, with whom to get
abandoned, hand in hand, whispering to each other well forgotten words
so that you can fall in love again in an ecstatic and cathartic
Here we give you these itineraries designed to discover
routes still available to lovers and shrewd travellers who could go
back over Casanova's secret places and scenes of his amorous adventures, or mysterious and legendary places in Corto Maltese's Venice.

The water of Venice softly caresses the stones in a never-ending and slow movement that goes towards the stasis without ever reaching it… and so we can discover how the water is caressed by a gondola like a woman's skin is smoothed or how to dip an oar into water like an artist dips his brush into paint during his moment of creation…
A sublime place where water, earth and sky meet each other through harmony of the sculpted stones, as in a sense-liberating dance…
In the same way how love becomes a liaison between an object and its reflection, in a city made of water this axiom becomes a cause of unique and unrepeatable plots on a topic of love.
