Venice for tours by MAY Communication & Events

October 13, 2021

“Venice for” is a slow tourism cultural project that we designed during the lockdown to give a different product to conscious tourists and to encourage sustainable tourism.


At a time when we couldn’t even get out of the house, we longed so much to be outside that we imagined new tour/experiences for our city. We could only think about the moment when “other people” from all over the world would return, and how to receive them, how to show a new Venice through contemporary art, design, modern architecture.


The tours have finally on!
The three Venice for tours are specific itineraries, dedicated to contemporary art and architecture, and design. Far from the shadow of the Saint Mark’s lion, they move among the hidden alleys in search of galleries, ateliers, and architectural gems.

We wanted to share with those who follow MAY and read us some fragments of the tours, to give you an idea of ​​what they really are and what you are missing out if you don’t book one!
