Do NOT buy glass from this showroom in Murano. They do NOT stand behind their glass products. I unfortunately bought drinking glasses from them. The first time I poured water into one of the glasses, the bottom of the glass broke off. I am heartbroken....More

The tour through the actual factory was VERY interesting. A dying art! Of course, the showroom had some beautiful pieces for sale, but the pieces for $35,000 were a bit beyond my reach!

Useful to admire the demonstration of the generation of an object like a beautiful glass horse. But just watch. Then Escape. Too persistent to sell items with false speeches that are the only originals. Instead, other shops in Murano cost less. Before buying, go for...More

I had ordered a tea cup and saucer set that during their tour was shown with a box to display. When shipped they forgot the box and I sent an email requesting - it was received quickly with no problems.
