My husband and I were looking for a glass blowing demo and came across this place. The glass blower was very skilled and demoed a few different glass works (we personally saw the heart, lampshade, and balloon). Well worth the Euros!

An interesting demo of house glass ware is made - the demo costs a 5 Euro fee, and was well worth it. Unfortunately, the wares for sale weren't that great, so we skipped buying any
