Tours in Venice for the blind and visually impaired visitors: the Carnival tour

A guided tour in Venice for blind or visually impaired visitors: let’s explore the world of the 18th century in Venice, in particular through the tradition of the mask in papier-mâché and chocolate, a drink that became quite popular, albeit quite expensive, exactly in those years. We will visit a workshop where masks are made and then enjoy a chocolate tasting in an artisanal laboratory.
