Contact me

If you’re interested in what I do, want to come for a walk, visit an abandoned island or just say Hi!, here’s how you can contact me.



This is the best way of getting hold of me. I’ll answer you email as soon as I have a minute alone.

I’ll answer when I can, but given the nature of my job, I cannot always do so.


Comments are open on almost every page on this site, so if you have comments, corrections or complaints about any specific page or article, that’s not a bad place to do it.

Please remember that site comments are public, so others can see them too.

Social Media

Like everybody else I waste too much time on social media sites, and History Walks Venice has profiles on quite a few. However, none of those profiles are monitored continuously.

The best place to find me is on my personal Mastodon profile, the next best is on BlueSky. I’ve grown quite weary of Facebook and Twitter, so any message there is likely to get a more belated reply, as I simply don’t visit those sites as often.

WhatsApp, Messenger, …

I’m not on any of these, in part because they often give away my private phone number, in part because of privacy concerns.

Having such apps on my phone will give those corporations too much information about me, and they don’t have my best interest at heart, like, at all.
