About the tour

Did you know that the first time that prescription glasses has been design was in a fresco in Treviso ? Around the 1352 by Tommaso da Modena . Our experience today will take us, in the history of the glasses and into the Italian fashion style. We will have the incredible chance to see the live demo from a local artisan to see how prescription glasses are made ! Something extremely unique as there are not many people that do that all over the world ! A tour that will show you the amazing skills of the made in Italy and why is so well renowned.

Meet your local guide


In Italy there is a special type of high school dedicated to tourism, and languages. Igor has been working in this sector since he graduated in 1996 . He started in a hotel near Venice, then moved to one in London, which was an amazing experience. When he returned to Italy, Igor worked for Globus and travelled all over Europe, from Portugal to Russia and the North Cape to Greece. Seeing so many places was great and Igor learned a lot meeting people from all over the world. In 2007, his grand tour ended, and Igor came home to Venice, where he qualified to work as a guide in the Veneto region (yes, in Italy you need a licence to work as a guide). He loves taking my guests around this wonderful region, showing them all the fantastic treasures that exist there.

Igor has been guiding since Jun 1997
