lovely town

Murano is a very pretty place with lots of little shops and glass factories. There are lots of good restaurants and bars. It is worth a visit

Visited Italy on backpacking trip, went by ,uranium on day trip when in Venice. Worth the easy boat trip, and worth spending the day. Easy to get around and amazing picture perfect scenes!

I wouldn't go again, it lacked atmosphere and seemed simply geared to sales of glass products. The few restaurants and bars were perfunctory.

Take the vaporetto (buy the day pass) and visit Murano, Burano, and Torcello on your own. Start early in the day on this expedition, the time passes way too quickly. Not many people know glassworking came from the East, crca 1000 AD. It was established in Venice until it was relocated to Murano in bout 1295. Hot furnaces are a... More

You have to visit Murano to see the famous glass blowing workshops, but don't buy your glass from there, get it from Venice. It's a lovely day out to wander slowly around the island.

Nothing amazing. Glass shops are interesting but much of the same stuff in all shops. The glass blowing demonstrations are typically done in the mornings so head up in the early part of the day to get a view. We weren't early enough and the demonstrations were finished for the day. We used Water buses to get to Murano from... More

Beautiful island known for Murano glass. The streets are filled with glass product shops with various prices. The products are more or less the same in all off them. Unfortunately it looks like the most of glass products came from China, but you can still find galleries with original Murano glass. Unfortunately the price is not a guarantee of originality....

We enjoyed our visit to Murano that we visited twice. We went on the no 1 water bus and had a good look round. Some lovely shops selling their glass ware. A lot of which is authenticated with a certificate. When one gets off the water bus there's a gentleman directing people to the glass factory, but beware the prices... More

Lovely island for browsing Murano Glass shops and seeing shopkeepers working with glass behind the counters or in back rooms. Plenty of cafés, but not enough here for a full day out. Museums only open on certain days, so check before travel.
