And It's worth going?Yes, to go once in your life It is worth knowing the manual glass-making process. There are also a short presentation and a visit to the store. The main purpose is that you should buy at least one piece. Stay calm and buy..... at least one piece :)

One of the most interesting tourist attraction is to take a trip to Murano Island and visit the Nuova Venier Glasswork outlet. Seeing is believeing and it is amazing in seeing 'live demo' in the way the multi colored glass sculpture is being done. It is only less than 30 minutes via water taxi to the island/outlet from Venice. Upon... More

Accepted the offer of a free trip to Murano and saw a demonstration of the great work that is done - true artistry. Then came the hard sell. Seeing lots of rooms with different glass products - some nice, some 'different' some, run of the mill and some downright gaudy. The prices are high - even after the special, today... More

Free water taxi both ways arranged by hotel. Wonderful way to spend the afternoon. Beautiful glass art work and very interesting tour of the art of glass blowing. It was a holiday, but they had an artisan there to show his skill. Ended up spending 1000 euros, but is cheep, compared to some of the costs for the art works.... More

We took the free shuttle from our hotel and had also shopped around town before visiting. The glass blower made a horse for our 9 year old and she enjoyed herself. I was looking for a fairly specific color scheme and size for a coffee table centerpiece. We found the perfect piece done by Marco Scaramuzza--we met him while there... More

We were talked into the free boat ride by our hotel consierge; it was obvious he or the hotel must be getting a commission, this is not so much a factory but rather a showroom. There is only one furnace that I saw, that was occupied by one glassblower. After this 15-20 minute 'show', you are whizzed past the gift... More

Really interesting to see how the Murano glass objects are made. Great show for our kids.They loved it. Make no mistake There will be pressure from the sales people for you to buy something.

I have read a lot of reviews on the "Murano Scam" and as such was a bit concerned about a purchase I made here. I decided to give my opinion on this trying to be objective. We took the free shuttle to Murano from a person in Venice representing himself as from the town council (had ID). On arriving we... More

Great tour and example of Murano glass. Our guide was very friendly and not pushy! The kids both got a chance to blow the glass and see the amazing showroom.

The hotel arranged a free water taxi to Murano. It sounded great. We went, very nice boat ride on a private water taxi. The "show" is interesting and a personal guide is there with you. After seeing the glass artists we were taken to the store. They have beautiful things. I started asking prices and there was no one price... More
