Picked up from our hotel for a 'tour'. It was a short demonstration followed by a long attempt to get us to buy. The charm of the tour guide (sales staff) vanished once he realised he was not going to make a sale.

Prefer Burano than Murano apart from seeing a glass show how it is done the area was quite dead and I thought it was worth exploring but it looked like this land was forgotten and not been cared about.

As part of a tour of the lagoon, this stop was very commercial. Unless you have a major interest in glass blowing, you could probably miss this stop - as Murano glass is readily available all over Venice for similar prices

A must watch event, especially for children, to see their expressions on their faces. Lovely pieces of artwork all in glass. If you ever get the chance to watch a glassblower do not refuse, although very priced for the touist.

Murano is just a short 20 minute water bus ride from Venice. Murano is a very quiet sleepy place compared to Venice. We bought some amazing glass artwork in Murano. Lots of shops offer glass blowing demonstrations.

We were part of a tour group set up by Globus, a company that does tours in many nations. Our tour started in Amsterdam and ended in Paris and the Murano Glass tour in Venice was arranged by Globus.
