About me in Venice ItalyPicture of my second visit

It's a great combination if you ask me… both are very happy with it… Who not… Together, we make contact with the Venetian people and businesses. We search for the best Venice Italy tips, the dos and don'ts. 

My name is Rudmer Hoekstra, and I'm the author of Venice-Information.com. I live in the Netherlands, but I try at least once a year to visit my favorite city, 'Venice.' I'm fond of the city and perhaps the most frequent visitor. Check my LinkedIn profile.

I also ran the Venice Marathon. At least the last 10km. In 2024 (if this continues), starting from 2024, I want to rerun the 10km. It is the last weekend of October every year. Do you want to walk the 10km with me? Apply here >

During my visits to Venice, I make notes. I have visited the city several times since 2008. For this website, I collect the news, relevant information, and genuine souvenirs from Venice. Maybe I'll start my own shop someday. I try to convey everything I see and experience to you.

...It is about me, but I made this website for you!

Venice-Information.com was launched in 2008 with ten pages. It is a copy of my successful Dutch website: www.NaarVenetie.com. Since I had to discover how to build a website, it took some time to develop it. This English version is the oldest brother of the Dutch version. I was consistently pointed out by friends that the website had to be in Dutch. I did that then;). And with great success.

I still remember how I felt the first time I arrived on my Venetian journey. I felt enthusiastic about my trip because Venice is not losing its beauty despite the many tourists. I immediately noticed this. I tried to pass this feeling to you as a reader of my site.
