I just loved the demonstration of how the glass artifacts are made... It a very difficult art but they do it with such ease.. Its a must watch. We didnt purchase anything as it was pricy..

Murano Glass is so individual and varies from very small items and figures to fantastic sculptures including musical instruments and in all colours and shades imaginable, the Galleries are quiet amazing but so are the smaller ones. Prices go from a few Euros for say...More

We were so impressed we bought an item to add to our collection of Murano glass from previous visits to Venice. The skill of some of these workers is unbelievable!

After hearing about Murano glass for years, it was great to visit the place where it is made. When I examined the detail of some of the small items it is easy to understand why the prices are so high. Artistry with any medium should...More

Watching the glass blowers at work was amazing and of course the trip through the showroom was as well. Stunning works of art!

Went as par5 of a tour which is free to enter and a demonstration which is fantastico. Expensive but the items are works of art and worth buying a piece or two.

Great glass blowing demonstration. Pretty incredible to watch. Of course, after the demonstration, you walk through the showroom where you can purchase items made there such as glasses, and other ornaments, beautiful selection but we found they were quite expensive.

Very touristy but once away from the traps it's lovely walking around finding those back street parks a specialty glass gift shops. A nice one is over the bridge to the left. Lovely unique glass earrings etc at reasonable prices.

We only saw the one glass blowing demonstration that was part of the Get Your Guide tour. It was very interesting. Could have easily spent the entire day on the island
