A bit about René

René rowing the gondola

I’m Danish, from Copenhagen, but I’ve been living in Venice for over a decade, with my Venetian wife Martina and our two dogs.

My alma mater is the University of Copenhagen, from where I have an M.A. in History and Italian and a B.Sc. in computer science.  I’m also an authorised Tour Leader (accompagnatore turistico) here in Italy in Danish, English and Italian, and a reasonably able photographer.

Venice is a truly magical place, and I never get tired of it. I’ve been here for over a decade, and every day is like the first.
