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!

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.

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
