Venice is filled with vendors selling masks. Some are more expensive than others and some are cheaply made than others. I was lucky enough to find this gem of a place. The artist was kind and his creations were all amazing. I wasn't even planning...More
We stumbled upon this mask shop and were not disappointed! The man who makes the masks was kind and patient with our questions. He encouraged us to try the masks on. When we showed interest he explained how they were made and showed us the...More
We dropped into this little shop on the last day of our trip to Venice and had a wonderful time. We browsed for about 20 minutes - we were not in a rush to drag our luggage through the winding streets and over bridges -...More
TL;DR: Very unfriendly to any tourists, terrible service, better mask shops do exist, don't waste your time or money here at all. See review for explanation. Visit Atelier Magera instead for authentic masks at better prices and with nicer service.

Visiting at carnival time there's one thing you must do, pick a mask. Really didn't fancy getting a plastic one from the cluttered stalles all over Venice so when we found this Atrisan it was a good opportunity to walk in and find out a...More
Stumbled across Casanova on our walking adventure and were amazed at how good the masks were. The man in the shop was actually making a mask as we were there, layers of paper mache. If you want a real Handmade Venetian mask this is the...More

Really charming shop, where you can actually watch how the masks are made.

It the only part I liked from visiting the whole sewerage smelling, over crowded,...More
We love this real hidden gem. Not only is the owner/artisan a pleasure to talk to he is also highly skilled in his art. We buy a new mask every visit to Venice and wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. Buying local helps the economy...More
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
