Venetian Craftsmen

Travel Date:

Sunday, 25th May 2014

One of the activities we did during our 2nd day was to discover the craftsmen in Venice. First, we passed the areas where the Gondolas were created by skillful and talented Venetian. Our tour guide showed the places where they built the Gondolas from scratch. Then our next stop was to visit a Glass company in Murano - one of the islands in Venice. It was pretty cool to see the glass blowing demonstration as part of our tour. It was like magic, he (craftsman) can easily form a simple brown colored glass into a beautiful glass horse decor.

Watch this video and be amazed!
