We made a special effort to visit Mauro in his studio, and we loved it! This artisan has such a gift, and we had our own private viewing session where he was so obliging making my 11 yr old daughter a complex glass butterfly and explaining the whole process in detail! I am sure we wouldn't have got the same... More

Spent an informative and lovely hour in Mauro's studio. He was more than happy to show us his skill in glasswork and answer our questions. Beautiful and unique work, that was different to anything else we saw in Venice. A lovely man, if you are interested in glasswork and especially if you love under the sea, then I am sure... More

My wife has always been the one interested in glass and she collects a few different types. My interest was always limited, but a visit to Mauro's studio changed my perception and gave me an appreciation for the craft I did not previously have. The detail of his work is superb. He set up a private demonstration for our group... More

I am so glad we found Mauro's studio on Tripadvisor and made a booking! It was a very intimate, very first-hand experience of Murano glass-making - and Mauro himself is a treasure trove of stories. In faultless English he managed to answer dozens of our questions AND blow a beautiful fish. Kids were totally mesmerised! The studio is absolutely worth... More

Venice is a magical place for so many reasons, but one reason many people visit is for the famous Murano glass. This tiny shop/studio, while not easy to find (but then, Venice can be confusing even with a map), does not require a trip over to the island of Murano to see glasswork in action. Mauro's family has been in... More

From the moment we met, Mauro's infectious enthusiasm for glass was inspiring, as was his glass work which is on display in his studio/workshop. He gave us a demonstration which combined glassblowing and later some coldworking to produce a beautiful shell which we had to buy along with a shrimp! Mauro is happy to talk about glass and glass techniques... More

We visited Mauro as part of our citytrip to Venice. He gave an excellent and enthusiastic overview of his work. He showed us how he made a conch shell, and explained what made it so difficult. As a suprise, he made a glass giraffe for my wife at my request. It is beautifull!! At the end of our visit, he... More

You'll do a lot of things in Venice. You'll take a gondola ride. You'll linger in Piazza San Marco and marvel at the basilica. But the most engaging time you'll have in Venice is with Mauro. He sculpts dreams out of glass. His passion will engage you in his craft as much as he is already invested. Mauro has wonderful... More

I enjoyed visiting Mauro Viannello's studio and shop. He was friendly and did a demo of making an owl. His sea life is amazing. I bought a hermit crab that looks real. The shop is by a quiet square where we had a Spritz.

Although we didn't have an appointment Mauro was kind enough to close his studio and give us a private demonstration of his craft. It was very interesting - Mauro was not only working with the glass but he also explained everything in detail. Much more worthy than going to Morano. We bought a beautiful sea shell - it looks like... More

Staying in San Polo

Neighborhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
