Worth the Time to Visit, but Beware the Sales Pitch.

Best thing is to pay for your own transport via public water bus (vaporetto) to this island, and possibly, time permitting, Burano as well. You should see the glass blowing demo... read more

The hotel we stayed in sent us "free" via taxi to this place. They give a great tour. Let you help with the glass blowing and treat you like royalty. The purchasing is "Let's make a deal". They tell you the shipping is included in the purchase BUT you must pay customs(a hefty fee) and if its for food use,... More

We visited this glass factory today to view the art of making glass . It was incredible to see the artistry of the glass masters and their creativity in making the artifacts. The owner, Mr Marino is a charming and gracious host. Their shop had exquisite glass pieces and I wish I could have bought more items. Andrea, his nephew... More

Best thing is to pay for your own transport via public water bus (vaporetto) to this island, and possibly, time permitting, Burano as well. You should see the glass blowing demo as it is truly a remarkable art esp considering that it is centuries old. While there, ask to see examples of calcedonia. It is a rare form of glass... More

We had heard much about visiting the Murano Glass factories and the hotel said they could arrange a free visit. We caught a water taxi and arrived hoping to walk around the island. WE were not allowed out of the Nuova Venier Glassworks. After a short 10 minute demonstration we were ushered into the showroom, which is quite spectacular, only... More

This is well worth the trip, the glass making skills are amazing to watch. The items on offer in the shop were beautiful but pricey. Our tweens loved this.

Our hotel arranged for a free boat ride to take us there. We found the glass making demonstration to be very informative and enjoyable. Afterwards we were taken to the showroom which was full of beautiful pieces. We found one thing to be annoying however and that was the fact that the salesman was constantly following us around and pushing... More

It was our third visit to the Glasswork and we found it amazing again. It's probably one of the few places in the world that even our kids enjoy. There are glass-derived masterpieces all over that place. Totally a must!

Went on a trip to Murano and visited the factory. I was amazed by the masterpieces on display and the way the are manufactured bi Italian glass-maestros. Instead of buying a painting for our Milano apartment, we decided to buy a colorful vase. Expensive, just like any piece of art, but happy I was fool enough to buy it. Simply... More
