Lace, masks, glasses, pearls, gondolas: Venezia is known in the world not only for its museums but also for the refinement and sophistication of its  traditional craftsmanship.
Do not miss the opportunity to visit the artisan shops of the ancient crafts that still exist in Venice: you can watch artisans at work! 

The ‘artisan’ Venice historically depended on its fame for quality production, and which today, still offers the visitor a vision of authentic daily life, only a short distance from the more “frenetic” tourist spots.
