Budget for Watercolour Workshop

We appreciate that it isn’t easy to calculate a trip abroad when you have to do all the sums yourself. With this in mind, we have created a table of typical costings so that you can better assess possible expenses during your time here in Venice. Bear in mind that our calculations are based on the actual tuition days and do not take into account any extension you may make to your holiday before or after the Workshop of your choice. It is also worth noting that the accommodation costs quoted are often for two or more people sharing a room or a self-catering apartment, and as such, costs could be reduced for two or more persons sharing the price indicated in our sample table.
