Whether you are a designer or simply a design enthusiast, this is an experience just for you. Meet Venice through the eyes of the designer and local artisans, a unique experience altogether with Viaggi di Architettura!
Venice is a great destination for lovers of art- and design. If you have a penny to spend, Venice knows of numerous high-end designer shops such as Cartier, Gucci and Versace. But we want you to experience Venice’s design world in a unique way. Our private tour will let you discover the emerging creatives from the local designer’s perspective. You will be guided through the narrow alleys, and introduced to the local artists and learn about their interesting stories and take a plunge into their culture and lifestyle.
We can visit the artisans’ workshops, these small shops garnished with hundreds of tools and machines, where you will have a behind the scenes look of this creative world. You can bump into all sorts of artisans; think of textiles, mosaics, glass, metal work, jewellery, artistic marble, etcetera.
As some of the workshops require an entrance fee, the tour has to be organised beforehand according to their availability.For information, reservations or special requests on routes dedicated to the city of Venice by Viaggi di Architettura.
