This is a must see! Seeing the Master at work! Was a wonderful experience. Free walk in Venice tours recommended that we attend this tour at Ellegi, in Murano. It's one thing knowing how the glass blowing process works - but seeing it done before you is another! It's incredible!

We visited today at 9:30am before anyone else showed up, and they gave us a great tour of the furnaces, and we saw vases being made, along with a small horse. They showed us through the large showroom and answered our many questions about how each item was made. We hadn't planned on buying anything and they knew that but... More

Boy, do they oversell this trip! We paid $67, plus the 7.50 Euros boat fare, to walk through Murano to this glass factory. It was sold as a "private glass-blowing demonstration," but we were sitting on bleachers with a bunch of other people, and we didn't even get to sit close enough to get any photos, because the other groups...

The glass blowing/working was really impressive and our guide very knowledgable. The items in the shop were superb. The salesman was very good and we found just the right items for us.

The master glass maker was extraordinary to watch. He made it look so effortless. He made a detailed complex piece - a horse in less than a minute. We also watched some of the other glass makers in the shop. We also did a workshop where we made jewelry from some glass beads from the factory. That was fun. They... More

My family and I visited Venice for an extended weekend. We decided to make a Sunday day trip to Murano. We visited the Colleoni glass factory early Sunday morning. We were greeted by the owner and given a private glass making exhibition. It was amazing watching the master glass maker effortlessly craft a chandelier. The cost of the exhibition (€10/pp)... More

My wife and I were boated out to Colleoni Glass Factory, where we viewed a glass blowing demonstration. Then we were taken for a tour of their gallery. They have a very large selection of items which are all quite interesting. We made a purchase which we carried home to the States without breaking. The boat ride to and from... More

Went on the Island Tours: Murano, Burano and Torcello. Murano, famous for it's glass, visited here, had a live demo of glass making, was interesting to watch and had a full on commentary in English as well. Then had an opportunity to visit the shop, lovely final pieces, but a bit too pricey for my liking.

Welcomed by the owner (sorry didn't catch his name) and was offered drinks while he explained his family and the factory's history. Watched a man blowing a vase and making a horse model with our guide explaining the process. Toured the beautiful glass galleries and made a bracelet in the workshop run by his daughter Sophia. Excellent morning, very enjoyable... More
