We currently live in Italy and decided to pop down to Venice for a short overnight trip with friends and family. It had been years since I was in Venice and it was the first time I would be introducing my children to this dream-like city. The one thing I really wanted for them was to see a glass blowing...

On a recent trip to Venice my family and I were lucky enough to catch Mauro at a quiet time so he was able to give us a demonstration. Our children were fascinated to watch a clown fish quickly emerge from the sticks of Murano glass. Mauro is a very friendly person who is happy to answer any questions and... More

Don't be satisfied by just looking in the window. Go inside and you'll find me many more treasures. Watch Mauroat the torch and gain a better appreciation of the talent and skill required to produce his exquisite work. Definitely a stop you must find! Bravo Mauro!!

Forget going to Murano with every other tourist – go straight to MAURO I found out about Mauro and his shop here on TripAdvisor and due to the excellent reviews he received, I knew I had to make stopping here a "must" on my trip to Italy. I was not disappointed. He showed us how he made one of his... More

Mauro is a wonderful man and a very talented artist. After purchasing a piece in his shop he offered to give us a demonstration. For the next 20 minutes we watched him put layer after layer on the blob of molten glass he was working. Then like pure magic he transformed it into a lifelike shell right before our eyes.... More

My 13 year old son had a specific request - a pigeon - as he fell in love with the Venetian birds (to some they may be vermin but not us - we think they're beautiful). Mauro not only made us a beautiful glass bird but he also took the time to hand deliver it to our hotel as we... More

We booked a 45 minute demo with Mauro but at the end of it I asked a question about blown glass and he jumped right into a second demo of a blown glass shell. The penguin demo was a lot of fun but the shell demo was absolutely amazing. He freely answers any questions you might have and is patient... More

Mauro is a great glass artist and teacher of thr art. We arrived early but he was kind enough to let us start early. He is very detailed and informative when he is explaining what he is doing. He charges a fee for the demo but it is well worth it. He waivers it if you purchase one of his... More

There is a reason Mauro has so many excellent reviews - he provides an excellent show. It is partly educational, partly creative and partly magical. Watching a lump of glass become a penguin was quite something, and having it all explained, and being able to ask questions was excellent. Not the cheapest of activities, but a real treat. Highly recommended

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
