This trip was such a value for money!! Extremely interesting and informative! The glass-blower was phenomenal and so creative! The huge variety of items made was 'mind-blowing' LOL....Also you can purchase a beautiful piece of jewellery, tableware or an ornament. Definitely worth a visit!

Our hotel set us up with a demo of their glass blowing. Afterwards, they take us to the gallery so we can see things by other artists. We ended up falling in love with a blow glass Picasso-esk head that we LOVE! Worth the stop

Couldn't make up my mind about a lovely little frog prince piece. The clerk was helpful and discounted the item. After thought I decided I could not live without my prince. The clerk was humorous and helpful.

We found this place by chance having taken a trip to Murano. The demonstration was really interesting and we were amazed how the ornaments were made. The shop had lots of really lovely gifts and at reasonable prices.
