Alternatively, discover how to paint and decorate your own mask with an experienced instructor. Choose a mask to decorate and to keep as a very special souvenir.

Venice: Venetian Style Carnival Pub Crawl

2. Venice: Venetian Style Carnival Pub Crawl

Go on a fun, Venetian style pub crawl of Venice, and discover traditional bars frequented by locals. Meet like minded travelers on a sociable tour that aims to show you how Venetians enjoy life. Meet in front of the Ca Rezzonico Museum at 5:00 PM, where you will be met by your guide. Then, meander through a labyrinth of small alleyways and campi (city squares) to visit 3 local bars known as ”bacari” in the Venetian dialect. Upon arrival at each bar, you will be offered an ombra (a glass of local wine). At the final bar you will have the chance to try the very popular Venetian, orange-colored cocktail known as “spritz,” usually served with an olive or two. You will also taste the typical venetian cicchetti (tapas) in each bacaro. Experience a great way of seeing the city as the locals see it, and chat to new friends. Great for singles, couples, or small groups, you never know who you might meet and who is behind the mask…

Excellent experience with my nephew who is six years old. A day later he is still talking about the mask . The instructor was very patient and I loved that we were able to work in a small group with focused attention on us. A good value for the money and great for kids.

Fun and informative. Location was a little difficult to find but once there the event host was very helpful, explained the history of carnival masks. His son did a wonderful job in decorating masks after we completed our painting of them.

Amazing experience, we really enjoyed our time. It was so relaxing and just so fun. His workshop was beautiful and so was his art work. So worth every penny!

Small intimate experience. Owner is so kind and patient and friendly. A great activity to do with kids. My daughters and I loved it!

Me and my girlfriend went for this workshop and it was beautiful. Nicolo took good care of us
