    Murano has always been a secretive island, only a five-minute vaporetto ride from the center of Venice. Glassmaking traditions pass from father to son. Competition and copying are rampant. Read more

    Murano Island, famous for glass-making, is the most popular island to visit. A few centuries ago, all glass makers were required to live on the island to protect the glass-making secrets.

    Go to the glass museum - it is worth the trip and the glass for sale in the shop is much better value and a lot more elegant than the kitsch stuff in the other commercial shops. Otherwise go to Venice

    There are handmade glass objects in Murano. Be sure they are from Murano not China in some stores. Also, most glass items like rings and necklaces are cheaper in Venice itself. Murano is double price
  • Luca P.
    Lovely place, just pay attention if you want to see a glass factory: they don't always make a tour explaining the procedures of glass-making, they just let u enter and look around...

    The only problem of Murano in Winter is that Winter is the low season, many things closed. But the Glass Church was amazing.
  • Julio D.
    It's a little island full of VERY EXPENSIVE glass shops (you can find better prices and variety in Venice). The island has the same arquitecture and canals, i would've rather stayed in Venice.
