The <span class="caps">ONLY</span> lace school left in Venice, this is a dying art. Your children might not get the chance to see this unless they are in a museum. And it makes great light relatively cheap but exclusive presents for the special ladies in your life. It&#8217;s a winner.&#8221;</p> <p>by &#8211; <a href="/people/6dbcaaf32d43b7a7d22e7a081173737c">Clarie Hanney</a>, Tour Manager, Europe</p> <p>&#8220;Lace in Venice is a really good present to buy for your grandparents, or aunt or uncle that you have to buy something for! They have really great tablecloths, serviettes and other lace products &#8211; the best thing about lace is that it is a souvenir you can actually use. We do this in the morning when we get to Venice and takes about 20 minutes &#8211; one of the people who works there will tell you about the history of lace making, and it really is actually quite interesting!&#8221;</p> <p>by &#8211; <a href="/people/f4590c60a597de92b21c130feae17696">Michael Thomas</a>, Tour Manager, Europe</p> <p><img src="http://downloads.contiki.com/contikipedia/europe/mattyvcontiki/venice_lace_103.JPG" class="rightwise" title="group at venice lace school" alt="group at venice lace school" /></p>
