Murano Glass in Venice
Venetian glassware has been world famous since the 13th century. Most
of the glass is made at the Murano glass factory, which you can visit
on the Isola di Murano. Watch the ancient tradition of glass-blowing,
and see the artisans using practically the same methods and tools their
ancestors used long ago.
The Museo Vetraio displays the finest samples of Murano glasswork. Murano glass is found all over Venice, and makes a perfect piece of memorabilia. Glass, crystal and ceramic items may be added to bridal gift registries or purchased as beautiful gifts for friends and relatives back home.
