MURANO GLASS MAKERS AND TORCELLO
Murano, synonymous with glass, it has been the centre of the glassmaking industry since 1291, when the furnaces and glass craftsmen were moved from the city, prompted by the risk of fire to the buildings and the disagreeable effects of smoke.
The Italy DMC organises for you tour of the best glass-blowing factories in Murano, world famous for the artistic Venetian glass-blowing art passed from father to son for generations.
You can also assist at a live demonstration of how to create colored glass from a glass rod.
The processing is made by fusing different kinds of glass together with each other creating combinations of shapes and new colors.
In order to work the glass, master glassmaker uses a gas flame which stays on all day, reaching very high temperatures. This allows him to continually create new shapes, colors and sizes.
Torcello island, a quiet and sparsely populated island in the Northern end of the Venetian Lagoon where will visit the 10th century small Cathedral offering beautiful mosaics of the Virgin.
Tiny and peaceful Torcello is the most evocative island in the lagoon and the first settlement for the original inhabitants, refugees fleeing from the collapse of the Roman Empire.
The charming Locanda Cipriani on Torcello island is the best place to get a lunch. It is simple, elegant furnishings combined with polite, attentive service and culinary delights based on reinterpretations of typical lagoon dishes. Diners can sit on the outdoor terrace in summer.

BURANO ISLAND & VENISSA WINE ESTATE
Here is a truly unique tour and experience combining the Lagoon most colourful island together with a cloistered vineyard and high-concept Chic gastro-retreat run by Michelin star Chef Antonia Klugmann, a brand new institution In Venice!
Burano and its “twin” island Mazzorbo, in the heart of the Northern Lagoon Park are only separated by a charming timber bridge. Their history dates back to the 5th century BC.
Burano, with its candy coloured houses, the canals, the bridges, the leaning tower, the houses and famous as a lace-working centre, became a tourist destination for many of the Venetian elite families who built sumptuous villas with flourishing gardens, and then the meeting places for artists and scholars.
Mazzorbo instead is a verdant and untouristy island that became place of spiritual retreat: over the centuries the small population, above all farmers and monks, dedicated themselves to the production of typical lagoon vegetables, looking after fruit trees (above all the grapevine) and nurturing fish breeds on the fish farms.
The ancient 2 hectares “walled vineyard” dating back to 15th C and watched over by an even older bell tower, produces the celebrated and awarded Venissa, the Golden Wine of Native Venice due to the brilliant color of its berries. The ambitious project of carrying out the Lagoon’s traditional vegetable and wine making activities is the brainchild of the Bisol family, celebrated wine growers and producers of Valdobbiadene Prosecco and many important partners, who eventually funded Venissa.
You can join the isle with Motorboat. Upon arrival at Venissa Estate group enjoy a guided visit to the vineyards and orchard and an “emotional” wine tasting of the precious Venissa wine.
Aperitif & Lunch will be served at Venissa Wine Estate After lunch, guests will proceed on foot to Burano island, crossing the charming wooden bridge. Guides will be available for directions and lecturing. At the end return transfer back to hotel by same motorboat.
THE MASS DECORATING CLASS!
Learn the art of mask-decorating at one of the oldest studios in Venice! An exciting experience that will take guests through the history and techniques of this ancient art. The art of Masks in Venice is a very old tradition. Going back to 14th century it then developed enormous significance in 18th century social relations, when aristocrats used to wear white masks to ornate their outfits, to such an extent that in some cases they were made compulsory by law. With the fall of the Venetian Republic at the end of the 18th century the use and tradition of masks gradually began to decline, until they disappeared altogether.
Mask decorating classes are held by professional teachers. As well as learning the basic theory and practice you will be encouraged to release your creative expression. Participants will be able to choose from the two suggested coloring techniques or else freely express their creativity, fantasy decoration with five finishing techniques. During the class refreshments will be served.

The magnificent staircase rising in double ramps to the top floor of the Palace also belongs to the Baroque period and was built to replace the old Gothic outer step.

Under the Austrian domination it was mainly employed for Carnival parties, later it became property of Venice Town Hall that turned it back to a Casino in 1936.
