VENICE MASTER ARTISANS: GONDOLAS & MASKS
Due to its unique urban setting, Venice is an open-air stage.
Its hidden courtyards, original Palazzi, and picturesque squares are perfect places for performances.
At Carnival, people disguise themselves and stroll through narrow streets, sip a hot chocolate in fancy cafés, join private parties to revive the atmosphere of the legendary 18th-century Mardi Gras, celebrated in the whole world.
One of the most desirable treats is a gondola tour on the Grand Canal while listening to old Venetian melodies and the best Operas Arias.
This tour deals with masks and gondolas, from traditional ones to the latest materials used by talented artisans.
Meet your professional guide at the hotel, get on a private taxi and enjoy a pleasant ride through winding canals.

Throughout the centuries Venice has provided superior quality handmade products exported in the entire world for powerful social classes, such as the clergy, aristocracy, and military hierarchies.
Today the simple word “Venice” still conjures up an atmosphere of sensual luxury, sophisticated elegance, and a myriad of joyful tactile and visual sensations.
Silk fabrics, glass, paper, leather, wood, and marble are the most frequently used materials.
