Venice professional guide > About me

The land where I live is so beautiful that every corner deserves to be described.

My name is Sara Grinzato. I am an Art Historian, Art Restorer and professional Tourist Guide in Venice, Italy. I design and conduct customized guided tours in Venice and the Veneto.

My studies
I hold a master's degree in Art History achieved with honors at the Ca' Foscari University of Venice in 2009. At the University of Padua I then obtained a professional specialization with the post-graduate degrre in Art History.
In 2011 I obtained the professional license as a restorer of paintings on wood and canvas and of polychrome sculptures at the Istituto Veneto per i Beni Culturali in Venice.
I am an independent researcher, who studies the artistic manifestations in the Veneto land with predilection for the 17th- and 18th- centuries ( ).
Numerous are my study experiences abroad, in particular in Madrid, Berlin and London.

My professional experience
Since I was a student, I have worked for different museums (e.g. the Civic Museums of Venice and some prestigious villas on the mainland) designing and conducting educational activities. This is how I best learnt how to be a good tourist guide! As an independent researcher, I love to study the Veneto art over the centuries, with special focus on painting and on the 18th century. I am member of some local associations of professional tourist guides, committed to enhancing the city, with particular attention to quality and sustainable tourism, such as Promoguide ( I own a restoration laboratory where I operate on oil paintings on canvas and polychromed wood sculptures. I work for private and public commissions, churches and museum (

My philosophy
Traveling is a unique experience of personal enrichment. First of all it means to approach a culturally different reality and to appreciate it in as many facets as possible.
Working as a guide allows me to become a cultural mediator, an interpreter of the extraordinary heritage that my land preserves.
A guided tour must be enlightening and exciting, and at the same time capable of selecting the significant elements making them memorable.

What my clients expect
Spending some time with me in Venice means to get to know the magnificent artistic heritage that is spread throughout the city. My clients are generally curious travelers, who love art and history, and who appreciate details. My clients are generally fascinated by my descriptions about how Venetians were able to mount a huge gild ceiling, to stretch the largest paintings in the world on frameworks, to move monumental columns from one side to the other of the Mediterranean Sea, to patiently position thousands of mosaic tiles.

I am a mother of two children and I have studied in depth the methodologies of the modern science of museum education. To check out my specific proposals for families visiting Venice please visit:
