We just took the 4.1/4.2 water bus (public bus boat service) from San Marco to Murano. Really glad we didn’t have a guide with us—-this little tour is totally navigatable on your own and fun! You step of the water bus and it’s dozens of...More

This visit was fabulous. The 20 minute demonstration was interesting, informative and impressive. Other factories charge for the demonstration but this one was free and terrific. Afterwards you are obviously tempted to buy something in the shop, which makes it profitable for the glass maker...More

The glass blowing demo is really cool but the high pressured sales tactics like a time share condo salesman are not. Be prepared for a hard sale for a $2000 vase. If you are willing to pay for a “Murano one of a kind vase”,...More

While the big factory and shop floor definitely has the feel of a tourist trap about it, the €5 glass blowing demonstration was genuinely interesting. We also ended up buying the glass horse like the one they made in the demonstration, which seemed pretty affordable...More

I chose to start my Murano experience with the gallery of Gino Mazzaccato which is quite big and impressive visually. I was with a friend and we were given an extensive tour by an elderly sales rep called Umberto. We got interested in some vases...More

We had a great time there and excellent service. We came in looking for a Venetian piece and got what we were looking for at a decent price.
