Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia promotes cultural itineraries to discover the heritage, the history of the city of Venice and its Museums. The proposals of “Museums and more” project are aimed at enhancing the museum offer in the context of thematic paths involving different districts with dialogues between the permanent collections and the life and history of the city.
The itineraries are organized and conducted by the official Venice guides who are qualified to provide the visitor with an excellent service and meet the different needs and expectations of the public.
“Museums and more” is part of #EnjoyRespectVenezia campaign launched by City of Venice.
