I have always wanted to go to Venice, my husband not so much! He felt like we were going to be ripped off with all the tourist shops. When we travel I don't buy a lot but what I buy is worth the money. We finally found this shop (not an easy thing to do) & Mauro was there with... More

Visited here after reading reviews on TripAdvisor and was certainly not disappointed. Mauro was very helpful, accommodating and gave us a wonderful demonstration on how he crafts these beautiful and delicate works of Art. Left with a bundle of fragile items to remind us of the trip. He also recommended the "best fish restaurant in Venice" just down the ally... More

We visited Mauro's shop while vacationing in Venice and it was the best part of our trip! He was so welcoming and had the most amazing glass figurines I had ever seen. He gave us a 45 minute demonstration where he made a glass sea shell from scratch, and it was absolutely amazing! During the demonstration, he took the time... More

In addition to being a brilliant glassmaker, Mauro was very sweet and accommodating. He provided a glassmaking demo for me and my friends (as a perk for making a big purchase); it was very cool.. I would recommend it. He was able to make three custom glass figurines for me in less than 24 hours; they turned out pretty well... More

Every time we visit Venice, which is about once a year, a visit in Mauro Vianello´s studio is a must. This tiny little studio, not far from The Rialto Bridge and Rialto Fish Market, is filled to the brim with colourful glass, mostly fishes, shells and other sea creatures in all the shapes and colours you can imagine, and a...

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!!

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.
