What To Expect

Piazza San Marco
Find out some hidden parts of the most beautiful city in the world, picturesque corners, labyrinthic ‘calli’ (typical narrow streets), and discover the Carnival history and anecdotes using Special Carnival Edition App! Feel the Carnival mood in a magic aura that envelops Venice in this out of time Festivity!

• Admission Ticket Free

Campo San Maurizio
Through impressive squares, among which Campo Manin, Campo Santo Stefano, and Campo Sant’Anzolo. These are not squares, as the word “campo” actually means “field”. Then, the ancient Calle degli Assassini. Across the ponte delle Ostreghe, a bridge which is a testament to Venice’s ancestral fishing tradition. And, of course, the churches. Most have incredible anecdotes to tell and sometimes even scandals. The church of san Maurizio, not so scandalous, does however host a great collection of musical instruments. Venice is after all the city of music.

• Admission Ticket Free

Palazzo delle Prigioni
During the hunt, you’ll have to take a picture of at least 3 points highlighted on the map. In the end, the treasure will be yours, a Venetian white mask just to be painted by your own. A professional mask- pinter will happily give some suggestions to decorate and personalize it in a wonderful Venetian Palace, the 1500 Doge’s prisons palace!

The ending location, guarding your treasure, worth your special attention. Everybody know or have ever heard about Casanova, right? Thus, according to many Venetian legends Casanova in flesh in blood was imprisoned in this historic Palace, which is part of the Doge’s Palace. The two buildings are connected through the well known Bridge of Sights. Only imagine the atmophere to paint your mask here!
