Peterpan Masks, Venice

5.0
#23 of 100 in Shopping in Venice
At Peterpan Masks, create a perfect memento from your visit to the Queen of Adriatic--a handmade papier-mache Venetian mask you get to paint yourself. The workshop began in 1996 and is run by four passionate and talented sisters. It's set in a former portico of an old church--look for the doorway with the engraving of Madonna. Masks are hand-painted and decorated with gold leaf, lace, and feathers. The private courses, which are held in small groups, will introduce you to the techniques and explain the history behind the city’s signature masks.

    Course in pairs to create paper mache Venetian masks originals! Wonderful experience that I would highly recommend to tourists and locals alike! Friendly and helpful staff, shop with lots of patterns and forms of different masks. You can find many different types for both adults and children! Choose original masks do NOT hand the CINESATE! We'll be back for sure

    Course of Venetian masks from 75 people in hotel laguna Palace Mestre! Wonderful experience: explanation of how creates a form original, and introduction on the history of the mask! Everyone has been able to create your own form with their fancy, or with the help from classic Venetian themes! Unique experience!

Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.
