The first two days of the Italy Picture Perfect Tour in Venice have been great!
In the first night, we were introduced by the Tour director Francis to our students, a group of 37 people from every part of the world, very eager to learn photography with us.
We had the chance to know a little about them during the welcome drink night at the Skyline Bar. Breathtaking views of Venice from the 8th floor of the Hilton Stucky Hotel, where we have stayed for two nights.
On day 2, the World Photo School booklets arrived from the printers and we had a “meet and greet” session with the students in the morning. We talked about image size and quality and also taught them about file formats and workflow.
After the class we visited a traditional glass making factory and had the chance to see a glass blowing master at work. Incredible and beautiful stuff. Venetian glass is famous worldwide and it was a truly unique experience.
In the afternoon we went to a “hidden Venice” sightseeing tour with a local guide. A fantastic city with countless spots and opportunities for great shots.
The last night in Venice ended with a lovely dinner at a traditional Venetian restaurant. Great food, great wine and great company.
Today we are off to the Dolomites, a mountain range located in the northern Italian Alps, which was declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 2009.
Keep up with us and our adventure.
