What To Expect

Piazzale Roma

You will discover the 3 huge bridges crossing the main Venetian road: The Grand Canal: Constitution bridge which is the most recent one, projected by the famous architect Calatrava, Scalzi bridge and the world known Rialto Bridge which is the oldest one. The hidden ancient law announcing place called the Rialto hunchback (because not only the Notre Dame has its hunchback)! What about the ancient fish market? It is called Rialto Mercato. Walking around Venice, you will find on your path a lot of characteristic streets, as for example, Calle dei Boteri with its fascinating artisan history. Erbaria, which word comes from ‘Erba’ that means spices in English. Venetians were and are not only gondoliers but especially merchants. Along the promenade, you will also learn the Carnival curiosities, about the masks and much more!

Piazza San Marco
The ending location, guarding your treasure, worth your special attention. Everybody know or have ever heard about Casanova, right?

The two buildings are connected through the well known Bridge of Sights. Only imagine the atmophere to paint your mask here!

Fait en famille. Prévoir des écouteurs pour que les enfants puissent profiter des histoires racontées via l’appli.
La récompense était également très sympa !
