Our experience with Massimiliano was amazing and absolutely worth the money. He let us choose the object we made during the demonstration. He was so knowledgeable about the different glass blowing techniques and made us feel like pros! He saw the imterest my boyfriend had in the technique and gave us so much information on how to do it ourselves in America! I would go back again next time I am in Venice. The e percent was wonderful and each item in the shop was breath taking. Thank you for everything!

What a great Surprise! I’ve a attended in a few occasions to Dido and Aeneas at the theatre, but this version is unique, intelligent, elegant and immersive. In this natural scenography the amazing costumes of the singers stand out, creating with the monochromatic frescoes a live picture! Great vocally and acting. Really good baroque orchestra. Less Is more! Highly recommended!

Everything was great! Arrived, received our tickets and was able to view the opera house that had just a few visitors when we were there,! Staff was friendly and helpful! Beautiful venue.
