Enchanting island with wonderful walk in the glass. Unique art, nice windows. Admire the special creativity of unique items at the center of a Wednesday place.

Murano is a small island to the north of Venice which is known for the manufacture of glass. The island is a bit like a mini Venice with canals etc. Most of the shops sell Murano glass.

Is better if you read on the website of promovetro, the assocociation of the glassblower. You could book a visit in one of the real glass factory (just 6 on Murano the others are in China or Polony)
