    Join Petulia Melideo of Context Travel as she shares tips on how to avoid non-certified and illegal guides at the Vatican plus how to find your way in Venice.


    You'll learn how to identify non-certified guides, how to avoid them, getting into the Vatican without waiting in a 3+ hour line, and the unfortunate result of your tour if you get caught with a non-certified guide.


    We then switch to discuss how to get around beautiful Venice once you step out of the train station.  You'll learn how to get to your hotel, how to find your bearings, which maps are the best option and as importantly which maps aren't a good option.


    This episode came as a request from a listener of the How to Tour Italy show.  Thank you Evangelina for a wonderful topic idea.  I hope Petulia and I answered your questions well.


    Keep the show topics coming.

    Melissa Conn of Save Venice at savevenice.org

    in Travel


    Save Venice Inc., based in New York with an office in Venice, has raised more than 20 million dollars to restore over 400 works of art and architecture in Venice. Every year, the Board of Save Venice, including a Projects Committee of renowned experts, selects restoration projects in collaboration with the Venetian Superintendencies of Monuments, Fine Arts and Museums. Save Venice currently has more than 30 projects underway throughout the city, made possible with support from individuals, foundations, and Chapters in Boston and California.


    Save Venice Inc. was established in response to the serious damage caused by the November 1966 floods – the highest tide in Venice in the last century.


    Originally the Venice Committee of the International Fund for Monuments, Save Venice became an independent, charitable organization in 1971. The founders were an extraordinary trio: John McAndrew (1904–78), Professor of Art History at Wellesley College; his wife, Betty Bartlett McAndrew (1906–86); and Sydney J. Freedberg (1914–97), Chairman of the Department of Art at Harvard and Chief Curator Emeritus of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Their successors, now spread across the United States and the globe, have made Save Venice by far the largest and most active committee preserving the cultural patrimony of Venice.


    The board of Save Venice chooses which projects to sponsor according to artistic merit and urgency of need. The conservation treatments are carried out by carefully selected restorers in Venice, and the restorers’ work is supervised both by the Superintendency and by Save Venice representatives. This attention to detail assures that donations are tracked at each step of the restoration process and are used wisely.
