Arte al Sole is pleased to announce some new interactive tours that will bring more of the history of Venice to life for you and your children. While we always modify our sessions to the ages of your kids, these tours will allow teens & tweens to take their noses out of phones and see Venice in a whole new way.
THE TIEPOLO AFFAIR & THE BURNING OF THE RIALTO BRIDGE
It’s 1310, and a group of aristocrats plot to overthrow the Doge – the Governor of the old Venetian Republic. In this role playing game for the whole family, participants will discover some of the court intrigue and repercussions of Venice’s turbulent past – taking on different roles to win the final prize. Participants will be divided into teams and will have to find clues and items amidst the iconic places connected to the plot to overthrow the Doge – But will you succeed?
Activity followed with a typically Venetian aperitivo – sampling delicious treats while hearing what happened to the families – including a Princess – involved in the takeover.

Along the way, families will hear stories, play typical games and kids will craft their own artworks of Venice inspired from the cityscapes and sea views from a truly unique perspective!
