What to expect

Meet your local guide in the center of Venice and with a short 15-minute walk through the hidden streets and picturesque corners you will reach Murano island on a public boat (ticket is not included). You will discover Murano which is a group of seven islands connected by bridges, and visit the IX Century Cathedral of San Donato before reaching the designed glass factory.

During the visit to the glass factory, you will see a glass master performing with the glass blowing technique and the sculpture technique and learn about this ancient art.

Continue your experience with a workshop where you will create your own handmade object in Murano glass. You can either create jewelry, choosing the glass beads as you make a bracelet or pair of earrings, or take part in a mosaic workshop where you can create an ornament with many multicolor glass elements.

At the end of the workshop, you will have time to visit the glass factory shop and enjoy a 20% discount.
