If you have been to Venice & Burano, this is a place to browse art pieces. If not, you can spend more time appreciating classic glass art pieces.

We spent a good two hours in here, which is impressive considering how small it looks from the outside. Photos are discouraged, and entrance is about $15 USD per person. Worth it! The glasswork is gorgeous, the interior itself is beautifully decorated, and upstairs there's...More

Exhibits are interesting if you're into Italian, Venetian art and craft. Main attraction being the gondola that Lady Diana sat in. We headed straight to the top floor to the cafe where hot chocolate is famed.
