We took a free boat ride to visit this glass studio and attend a glsss blowing demonstration in May 2016. After the demo, sales people guided us through the show rooms, which house beautiful hand made blown glass art. We purchased two pieces for approximately $8000 USD. The salesman and manger assured us that it would be shipped tax and... More

We just received the two purchases we made a few weeks ago in the store. They have many beautiful pieces. The quality is tremendous and there was no pressure. We are really pleased with the pieces and would return again.

To be honest we freaked out after reading all the reviews. But in reality our experience was very pleasant and we got a very nice piece of art for our home.

We took the free taxi to Nuova Venier. Saw an interesting glass blowing presentation then onto the showroom. They have a large showroom with beautiful pieces. We did buy a gorgeous vase which we love. We did ask our salesman if there was anywhere for lunch or anything else to see and walk around on Murano and were told nothing... More

We visited this art glass works on the beautiful island of Murano recently. We were offered free motorboat trip to the factory whilst walking along the Riva dei Schiavoni one morning. At first you think, con and how much is this going to cost me. However having been assured the only cost would be the 7.50 euro return fare on... More

The hotel we stayed in sent us "free" via taxi to this place. They give a great tour. Let you help with the glass blowing and treat you like royalty. The purchasing is "Let's make a deal". They tell you the shipping is included in the purchase BUT you must pay customs(a hefty fee) and if its for food use,... More

We visited this glass factory today to view the art of making glass . It was incredible to see the artistry of the glass masters and their creativity in making the artifacts. The owner, Mr Marino is a charming and gracious host. Their shop had exquisite glass pieces and I wish I could have bought more items. Andrea, his nephew... More

Best thing is to pay for your own transport via public water bus (vaporetto) to this island, and possibly, time permitting, Burano as well. You should see the glass blowing demo as it is truly a remarkable art esp considering that it is centuries old. While there, ask to see examples of calcedonia. It is a rare form of glass... More
