Murano is a classic to visit when in Venice, and they are very proud of their glass manufacturing and artistry which make it a unique place. Originally the workers were not allowed to set up shop with the skills learned anywhere else but in Murano. "Murano first". This made them also very commercial and a bit arrogant. For example if...

We visited Murano as a part of the tour visit which included visiting the 3 islands namely, Murano, Burano and Torcello. Murano is where all the glass factories are located, We also got to see a live demonstration of how the glass articles are made by a 'maestro' which was both amazing and mesmerising.

Take line 7 vaporetto from San Marco to this ancient centre of glass making. The museum is fabulous with a century by century history up to the artistic creations of today. It is a lovely peaceful place and from Murano faro you can visit Burano and the Lido after Great shops to browse in too

Murano is where Venetian glass was created. The island itself is not so spectacular, but if you go there early in the morning you can enjoy it better without far from the crowds of tourists. Museo del Vetro is a history museum that showcases Venetian glass techniques over the centuries, and displays varieties of glass from as far back as... More

Watching the live glass blowing on Murano island is a really cool experience that shouldn't be missed when traveling to Venice.

If you want to see a true «artisan» of glass making, go to Murano Island. The tour we took allowed us to learn and see how those unique «work of art» are made. We were seated at about 20 - 30 feet (8 - 10 meters) from the action, within 15 minutes we witnessed two items «crafted» live! Their collection... More

We choosed to start the visit through Murano and it was pleasant. Don't miss to visit a glass factory as it's always instructive. One of the bad think is naturally the high number of tourists sprain everywhere.

You can visit the island go see demonstrations of how murano glass items are made and to buy them. There are also demonstrations of how the glass is moulded to make various items. If you get off at the Colonna water bus station, turn left as you exit the boat platform and walk along the water until you reach a... More
