I am glad this stop was on our tour because it was very enjoyable to see glass being blown. Also you can step thru the many showrooms to see their products. We purchased a beautiful angel Christmas ornament there for about 18 euro.

The artistic value of the glass objects is absolutely stunning, as long as you like it, of course. There are some really incredible pieces. However the prices that are being charged for these items are just far too extravagant for most visitors. They are beautiful...More

When our hotel offered us a free water taxi ride to Murano, I guessed that it would be paid for by one of the glass producers there and I was right, the water taxi was paid for by this company. However, I knew that I...More
