  • Amazing mask shop! Hope to see you next time Davide! Cheers, Mike
  • If you want a real mask go there. You will understand why these are not 5€ a piece. Handmade in Venice and the quality is fantastic . Worth a trip
  • Excellent experience for families in venice!! Kids 7 and 4 had a great time, and we did also
