Meet your private local guide at your hotel reception desk. Board the private water taxi and travel along the Grand Canal through Venice and the lagoon to reach the island of Murano.
Once we arrive at Murano Island, you will walk through the historical center and visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria e Donato, a 7th-century church of rare Romanesque style with original mosaics. After a 15-minute walk through Murano's quiet streets, you will reach the glass factory.
Here, you will spend about 20 minutes observing the glass masters at work. Watch them make two different objects with their famous technique for glass-blowing and sculpture.
Would you like to try on the glass slipper? If your foot fits, you will become the Cinderella of the day and will receive a special present. You can choose from a multi-colored flower vase, a dish with 'millefiori' decoration, or a Venetian wine glass (called 'goto'). You will also receive free time in the showrooms and a special 20% discount on purchases.
The tour ends in the glass factory. You can return to the center of Venice or continue easily to Burano and Torcello at any time with public transportation (on your own). The boat station is approximately 300 meters from the glass factory (ticket not included).
