    Stop: 50 minutes - Admission included
    The visit consists in an explanation of how it's made a Violin, and a Bow, the woods used, a lot of curiosity about Stradivari and the violin art, about making, varnishes and... prices of violins. You can touch and smell the wood, you can take some chips of wood... After you'll go upstairs into the school, in the classroom with students at work, with the smell of cutted wood, looking at the tools they use, and speaking with teachers and students, they come from all over the World, maybe you can meet someone from your country. The school is inside a beautyful historical palace that gives to all the visit the right landscape. After the visit, you'll understand better the "Violin World" and in the future you'll appreciate better this art.

Amazing Tour
May 2019 • Couples
Even if you don't make violins but like music, this is just a wonderful tour. Our guide whose father started the school was just delightful. There were only three people on the tour, and we were able to see the bow making school as well as the violin making part, and got to talk with the students there. Very highly recommended!
