Brief visit but very impressed! A must see for everyone in Venice. Very friendly staff and a fantastic free demonstration of a glass bottle and horse ornament.

Our hotel, Londra Palace, arranged our free boat ride to Murano to visit this factory. The boat ride itself was enjoyable, and a nice way to see things in Venice. It was cold and drizzly, with only a few other people on the tour and in the factory. We watched the demonstration and were taken around the showroom by Eugene.... More

My husband, our best friends, and I were unknowingly led to this establishment under the assumption of a free ride to Murano. After already having 72 hour vaporetto passes, thus free transportation, our hotel insisted that we should take the "free" boat they provided to Murano. We arrived at the back (water side) entrance of this establishment and were forced... More

When in Venice, I wanted to find a statement piece, a Murano Glass Sculpture. While it is true that once you are in their store, they try to keep you "occupied". I had found a piece of sculpture that I just could not help coming back to. The gentlemen (2 Alberto's) that were helping me were more than accommodating moving... More

I must object to those who call this visit a 'mousetrap' etc. Yes, the sales people are professionally pushing the visitors into buying some glass, but this is what they are paid to do. The exhibition is very interesting, and the delivery of the items we had purchased was impeccable. Good packing, too, not a single damaged item upon arrival.

Our wonderful Hotel Igea in Venice arranged this free trip to Murano Island (there's also another island called Burano which is further away). To be honest, I had very different expectations from Murano. My parents were there in the late 50's when I was little and did bring me a souvenir from Murano, a tiny little glass mouse, very cute...

We arranged a trip to this glassworks through our hotel, and a free water taxi was laid on for us, at the time we requested. We were a little apprehensive as we had heard stories of high pressure sales techniques after accepting a free ride. We need not have bothered. The visit to the factory was amazing to see the...

Nuova Venier ! A wonderful experience! We were shown around the glassworks and learnt much about the skill of glass blowing and manufacture. On the business front Nuova Venier were brilliant. We bought a wine service and acquired 2 stunning and beautiful pieces of Art by the mercurial genius Luca Vidal. The prices were aggressively competitive and I can assure... More

My wife and I stayed in Lido, Venice for few days and wanted to see in person what Murano glass is famous for. Our implacable concierge from Albergo Quattro Fontana, Massimo, recommended us the Nuova Venier factory and set an appointment with them. Nouva Venier sent a beautiful shinny wood boat to pick us up piloted by Flavio, a very... More

Our hotel in Venice "Monaco Grand Canal" offered us a ride to meet a glass factory in Murano called Fornace Venier and we decided to accept. We were greeted by a very kind person, speaking our language almost perfectly and very well trained to press and convince you to buy a piece, saying that a piece is unique and from... More
