Overview

Travel to Murano by boat with your tour guide and explore the island, worldwide famous for its glass making since the 10th century. A great experience where you will learn the manufacture and glassblowing art. In front of you a glass craftsman master will create a unique item while he is showing the ancient technique phases of the production. You will discover this art that came from the Romans who after the fleeing of the barbarians, established the city of Venice. You can feel the warmth, the smells and the sounds of the furnace and you will see the clever hands of the artisan mold the glass in front of your eyes and then, like magic, it will be transformed into a unique object, thanks to the work of a millennial artisan culture that has been handed down from one generation to another. The glassblowing art is recognized in all the world as a synonym of beauty. Venetians mold a lot of things everyday with glass, objects like cups, glasses, dishes, mirrors and lamps.
