HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

This 40 minutes guided tour is perfect for a family since it is available for maximum 5 people. In the workshop of the venetian Battiloro, the only one in Italy and in Europe that turns gold bars into thin leaves following a method of the 18C, you will understand and observe how they actually transform this precious material. We will show this noble craft in all its stages inside the palace of the famous painter Titian. We will explain the different applications of those thin gold leaves. In the historic workshop, that is still intact since 1926, gold, silver and other precious metals are transformed into thin leaves, suitable for applications in many fields. The added value of our family-run business is the artisanal production and the passion that drives us: in fact, the whole working process is carried out with the old wisdom and the wealth of human labor. A unique experience that will make you touch gold with your hands!

SOME TIPS

Price for one person is 50€, 2 persons 30€ each, 3 persons 25€ each, 4 persons 20€ each, 5 persons 15€ each.
