Offered free passage by water taxi to the glass works on Murano we were suspicious at first. But no need, the offer was genuine, free taxi, tour of the glassworks and showrooms without obligation. We had an enjoyable time, watched the craftsmen at work and marvelled at the works of art in the showrooms. We did buy some bits but... More

They showed us glass blowing and the sculpture technique (the furnace is 1100C!). After the demo, we went around the gallery with Andrea and Fabio who helped us pick among the... More

We bought a lovely vase here, all work is good quality. We recommend anyone who comes to Venice to visit Murano and particularly the Glassworks to buy authentic Murano glass.

We just received the two purchases we made a few weeks ago in the store. They have many beautiful pieces. The quality is tremendous and there was no pressure. We are really pleased with the pieces and would return again.

To be honest we freaked out after reading all the reviews. But in reality our experience was very pleasant and we got a very nice piece of art for our home. As many others were offered a free ride (which on my opinion should not be critisized and should just be taken as a simple marketing promotion). We were not... More
