Truly the highlight of our Venice shopping experience. Nuova Venier provided for our water taxi to their studio in Murano and provided an amazing demonstration of how they create the works of art that adorn their showroom. Having visited other glass producers throughout Europe, it was still most impressive and very Italian. Our sales associate explained the products thoroughly then... More

We were two couples visiting from the US and took a water taxi from San Marco to this glass factory on Mirano. "Andrew" greeted us and was extremely personable and escorted us into their glass blowing demonstration area. Here we watched and learned the art of glass articles manufacture, such as chandeliers, by craftsmen. After we walked through their showrooms... More

Everything is nice in these glassworks from showing you how to blow the glass to your own personal sales assistant that wont go away until you have spent money in there store You will feel pressured here to buy although the clever Italians will explain they are there to answer any questions you may have and offer you the best...

We were approached by a hawker near St Mark's Square. A free ride out to the Island where we were met by very charming gentlemen from the glassworks. There is a demonstration of glasswork before an introduction to the showrooms. There are various styles and some fabulous pieces but they are not cheap. Although we were told, more than once,...

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...

While walking around Piazza San Marco, we were approached by someone asking if we would like to tour a Murano Glass factory. 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...
