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...

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
