Just imagine getting ready for a masquerade....while enjoying scrumptious Venetian chocolates...
Venice has a fascinating history of carnivals, masquerades, and sweets. What could be more fun than getting to know this magical city by making authentic hand-painted masks and tasting authentic Venetian chocolates?
With our Venice for Kids tour, you will explore the history of masks in Venice, complete with a journey of the city's glamorous masquerade balls and festive carnivals. The elaborate Venetian mask is as synonymous with Venice as gondolas and canals. Within a beautiful workshop, you and your kids will make your very own Venetian masks. A great way to connect with "The Serene City's" rich heritage, with our Vencie for Kids tour you will have a truly original souvenir made with your very own hands.
Your teacher will be a typical Venetian artisan, not only an expert of mask-making, but full of entertainment as only Italians can be! You and your family will learn the secret techniques of creating a fabulous mask, starting with the historic craft of "papier-mache." Now all you need is an invitation to a masquerade ball!
If your kids prefer, we can substitute mask-making with a special visit to a historical Gondola yard. Your family will be able to see first-hand how Venetians construct their gondolas.
The class will be followed by a delicious tasting at the city's most famous chocolate factory. Surrounded by the rich aromas of Venice's much-loved "cioccolato", you will have a historical introduction to Venetian cocoa. Best of all, you and your children will be able to tantalize your senses by tasting some of Italy's most delectable chocolates. Yummy!
