Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

5,014 reviews
This sightseeing tour allows you to see three islands in the Venetian Lagoon in half a day. Visitors often visit Murano—well-known for its glass-blowing factory—but fewer make it to Burano and Torcello, with their lace-making shops and ornate palaces and churches. The tour also offers two departure times a day, making it easier to fit into your schedule.

If you would like a real intimate demonstration of authentic glass techniques this is the stop. No high pressure trip to Murano. Either pay this man for his time or purchase a glass piece that you were going to anyway. Admit it. He explains how he came to the art and is quite humble about a mastery you are unlikely to ever see again. If you are a group of 5 or less, do not miss this in Venice!

We stumbled upon this workshop by accident, completely drawn in by the figurines on display in the window. Came into the little shop to have a closer look. I decided I would try and get something for a very important friend and was happy to pay the little extra for something handmade. The items we liked on display were a little out of my price range, we asked him if he would mind making us a little Penguin figurine as this was a gift for someone who loved Penguins and he told us to return the next day. We returned the next day and were delighted with the little creation. We cannot thank him enough what a fantastic little shop and Artist!

We spent 24 hours in Venice. Having found Mauros shop through Tripadvisor, we sent an email and got a rapid response with an appointment to see a demonstration the very same day. Our family of four (children 8 and 11) were all totally amazed by the craftsmanship Mauro showed us! He told us that very few artists of his kind opens up their workshop to the public, so this is quite a rare experience. We also loved to hear a little bit about his personal story as an artist. Although our children don't yet speak English well enough to understand everything he said, they were both taken in by his warmth and our youngest said he is "kind of part of the family now" :) The oldest one now has a definite plan of becoming an artist in glass:) If you buy something from his shop, Mauro does not charge for the demonstration. We left with an absolutely wonderful shell, and also the fish he made while demonstrating, which unfortunately broke a little, and therefore could not be sold - so he gave it to us for free. Although perfection is an ideal in art, we try to teach our kids to see the value and beauty in imperfection as well - because so very few things in life are perfect. So Mauro little fish will always be loved by our family because of the wonderful experience and beauty it holds. And visiting Mauro in his shop is a memory from lovely Venice we will all cherish.

We knew our time would be limited in Venice, and we probably wouldn't be able to visit Murano. Still, I wanted to see beautiful glass! My research for a glass artist in Venice turned up Mauro Vianello and his studio. I emailed him and arranged for a private demo for our family. It was one of the best things we did during our trip to Italy! We thoroughly enjoyed hearing Mauro talk about his passion for glass making and his experiences teaching classes at the Corning Museum of Glass and the Pittsburgh Glass Center. Watching how he starts with just a blob of transparent glass and then eventually ends up with a beautifully-crafted work of art was absolutely fascinating. His explanations of the technical side of things engaged my husband who is an engineer, and his artistry inspired me, as I am a musician. We feel we made a new friend in Venice! We did purchase one of his pieces and will treasure having it on display in our home.

We were hoping to see glassmaking in action without the tourist “traps” you hear about. Well, we found it! Mauro is lovely. He is so talented and passionate about his work. He told his story and then made a beautiful shell in front of our eyes. There was no pressure to buy anything but we could not leave without that shell!! Don’t miss this opportunity! Thanks Mauro! Alexis and family
