Yoga and Mixed Art

We will be staying in a 15th century small palace, located perfectly half way between San Marco and Rialto bridge. After morning yoga sessions and an organic brunch at the hotel, we will explore the secrets of the city. Mixed-art sessions will be offered every day (all supplies provided). We have been many times to Venice and always return!

All meals in cool restaurants, transportation by vaporetto, entrance to museum, monuments and Vivaldi concert are included. Travel from and to airport or train station and extra drinks are not included. We are taking only 8 participants to be flexible and create deeper connections between us and this mysterious and flamboyant city.
