Worth a journey - heavy sales pitch

We went out to this early in morning free via hawker in St Peters Square - all very interesting and definitely a skill and art. Some fantastic pieces to buy - expensive though

The hotel mentioned we could have a free water taxi to see the factory where glass is made which was a great use of our short time in Venice. The hotel may well be getting some advantage by promoting the visit although that didn't really concern us. The glass blowing demonstration could be considered a tourist show, however, it's an...

Before this trip I never heard of Murano Glass, but my wife sure did and jumped at the opportunity. We were given a free water taxi ride to Murano where we were met by a factory representative at...

Our sales person was very nice and everyone at the factory was very nice. We bought something despite my intrepidation about having it... More

Despite some negative reviews my wife and I decided to visit the Glassworks. We were very impressed and we purchased wine glasses with name engraved. When the glasses arrived in Canada they were the wrong ones and we contacted the Sales person we dealt with; Valentina Della Mora. The issue was dealt with promptly and efficiently with a real understanding... More

In 1974, my dad took over the management of Nuova Venier, apparently looks like a simple job, but committed 10 people in our family for about 10 hours a day. Producing glass is apparently easy, but here at Murano 2000 people working... More
