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...

We took the free boat from our hotel to the glass factory. The boat ride is very nice and the glass is amazing and beautiful. There is so much variety, there is something for everyone to enjoy. 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

Roberto L, Proprietario at Nuova Venier Glassworks, responded to this review

Dear Sir, I am the owner of the company Nuova Venier, my name is Laggia Marino - Roberto. 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

He was very insistent that this was not a scam. We agreed... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the water taxi trip out to the glass factory. We enjoyed the demonstration of glass making as well as our escorted tour around the various artists rooms which displayed their truly amazing glass art. There was no real high pressure to buy but you know that having given you a free ride to visit the factory there is... More
