    What to Expect
    Connect with your private guide at San Barnaba Square in the Dorsoduro neighborhood, and set off by foot to explore the charming back streets, piazzas, and canals of Venice. The city has a centuries-long tradition of producing some of the finest handmade goods in Europe, most famously glass and textiles. With the help of your guide’s local insight, visit the workshops of skilled artisans that carry on this heritage while avoiding tourist traps that sell mass-produced goods.

    Meet the modern masters who create lavish costumes and masks used to celebrate Venice’s renowned Carnival, plus artisans who practice hard-won skills in leather work, carpentry, jewelry design, toy making, glassblowing, and more. See firsthand how high-quality, ‘Made in Italy’ goods are designed and produced by hand using techniques passed down through generations.

    At the end of the 2.5-hour tour, come away with a new appreciation of Venice’s thriving arts and crafts scene, plus plentiful addresses for the best handmade shopping destinations in the city.

    Price listed is per group, up to a maximum of eight people.
