Your private Murano glass blowing experience starts when your private guide meets you at your hotel and takes you to your waiting luxury water taxi. Seeing Venice from the water is a must for any visitor, giving you the chance to truly appreciate the unique way this magical city is entirely built on water. Once out on the water, you will make your way to the famous glass blowing island of Europe – Murano Island. Known for its exceptional blown glass pieces, this is the place to visit to discover the famous 700-year-old glass blowing tradition of Venice whose artisans became known as Europe’s finest glass and mirror makers.
Murano, like Venice, is actually made up of several small islands, in this case, seven that are connected by bridges. With a population of about 5000 locals, you will have the chance to experience another side of Venetian life. Enjoy a short stroll with your guide and soak up the island’s enchanting character, unique architecture, narrow waterways and seemingly endless bridges. Enjoy the quieter, crowd-free atmosphere, away from the busier center of Venice. As you walk through Murano, you will see the many glass shops realizing that its long history of glassblowing still thrives today.
After your short walking tour of the enchanting island, you will visit one of the most famous glass blowing workshops on Murano and meet locals who are passionately keeping this tradition and craft alive. Enjoy a live demonstration of glassblowing and see how easy these masterful craftsmen make this difficult craft look. At this workshop, you will have the chance to browse (and buy) some of the most renowned glass pieces in the world, more than a souvenir, it is a piece of history! The workshop’s international shipping makes it easy for you to send your treasures directly home, the best present to open when you return home.
