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 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. A few of us were...More

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

I got a cat-mask from this place. The manufacturer, who was working inside the shop making another mask, explained how it is done, and showed us the original mold. Really charming shop, where you can actually watch how the masks are made. The painting on...More

You would think a handmade and painted mask would be too expensive, but if you want a real mask of Venice come to Casanova. Prices are very reasonable and not made in China!

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

San Polo
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
neighborhood. 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
