Palazzo Fortuny finally reopened

The 15th century Palazzo Pesaro degli Orfei was acquired at the beginning of the 20th century by the Spanish painter, inventor and art collector Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo (1871-1949). The eclectic and visionary artist transformed it into his own atelier of photography, stage-design, textile-design and painting. At the end of 2007 the Museum has finally reopened, after a long period of restauration, and will also host several exhibitions during 2008.

Walks inside Venice will be very glad to guide you into this fascinating creative labyrinth and splendid Gothic residence.

Ty Ebright / Konstanze Frei: Your enthusiasiam is obvious. I want to come back to Venice, in the near future, and spend more time learning from you. When we arrived in Florence, all we could talk about was the fantastic experience we had with you both. Both of you are to be admired for your knowledge, enthusiasiam and, professionalism. You were both truly the "icing" on the cake called Venice! Mr. and Mrs. Enthoven and D'Amico were equally impressed with your services. Please use me as a referral in the future.


Antoinette Serafino: Just a note to tell you how much we enjoyed our tour while in Venice.

We were very impressed with your intelligence, wit and command of the language.

And the care you took to be informative and interesting.

We are sorry to be home but blessed with wonderful memories of the trip.

Thank you,


I just want to thank you so much for providing us with a
wonderful full-day tour on September 14th. I
realize that we were a little slower than your usual group, but you
need to know that my parents felt the Venice tour with you was a
highlight of our entire trip! My mother, especially, could not stop
talking about how much she enjoyed your knowledge, personality, sense
of humor, and abilities.
Please know that I will be forever grateful for all that you did. This
was my parents' 50th wedding anniversary trip, and your tour was
something we will all never forget. I will be sure to let others know,
as I already have, about how great you were!

I had to pinch myself when I was standing in the Doge's Palace on Mon. morning face-to-face with our local guide--a Venetian--whose passion for her city's history, art, and culture were downright infectious. I was already in love with the place but she brought Venice's past alive for me. I felt sorry for the thousands who visit the city without the luxury of having such a wonderful guide to help them understand all that surrounds them.
