This is a lovely island and is very busy during the day but then will become very quiet on the evening, with only a few restaurants open. The shops only sale one thing and that is glass ornaments. But worth a visit.

We toured a Murano Glass workshop and their beautiful and amazing artwork. The island itself is quite industrial...so the beauty is in the glass masterpieces.

A short hop from Venice on a water taxi, this island has some lovely quiet streets to wander. The glass workshop is interesting and then pretty much every shop sells glass ware. I think a lot of it is not official Murano glass so be...More

A really pleasant surprise. After reading reviews we thought it would be quite a boring island but it is far nicer in our opinion than its neighbour Burano. The glass blowing studio - first one you reach - had a really annoying assistant hurrying everyone...More

We wanted to see Murano glass being made on the island of Murano which is a short waterbus trip from Venice. Very pleased we did. We did pre-book the night before but to be honest there wasn't any queues. We arrived earlier than planned but...More

A visit to Murano is like stepping off of a roller coaster and into the shade of a nice tree and relaxing. It is still a Venetian experience, but at a calmer pace. Rather than the typical "junk" shops you can find in Venice, you...More

I must be getting cynical in my old age, but to me the boat ride out was excellent, and the museum was interesting, but after that the centre is purely a large shopping mall. Had we had more time I would have wanted to visit...More

We went here for the day, visiting Murano and then Burano-both are wonderful and worth the trip. When looking at the glass shops remember you do not have to buy anything, - and you may even find a shop where they blow glass in the...More

We took the vaporetto without a specific plan. When we got to the island a greeter waved us into a glass factory demonstration that was to begin shortly. Very clear presentation and explanations. Afterwards we were escorted through the gift shop which is usually an...More

This was nice for a walk, but no more than an hour. Some nice views, interesting glass sculptures, but definitely burano is better.

Is better if you read on the website of promovetro, the assocociation of the glassblower. You could book a visit in one of the real glass factory (just 6 on Murano the others are in China or Polony)
