The Magic Art of Glassblowing
Watch a glass craftsman create a unique art piece, like magic, right in front of your eyes. While this mesmerizing art form comes to life, you'll hear all about its ancient history and techniques. The warmth, smells and sounds of the furnace will take you right back through time to the Venetian Republic.

At the end of your experience, you will receive a small glass souvenir as a memento of this visit.

Float along Venice's most characteristic and memorable features: its canals. You'll pass through the Grand Canal, cruise under charming small bridges and explore some of city's most secluded waterways.
