About me in Venice ItalyPicture of my second visit

A great combination if you ask me… both 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 do and don'ts. 

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

    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 real souvenirs from Venice. Maybe I'll start my own shop someday. I try to convey everything I see and experience to you.

    Would you like to work with me? Fill in the contact form below. Almost anything is possible. Also, for a regular link exchange between my website and yours. Your website must be fair and of good quality with useful extra information for my visitors.

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

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

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