isola di Murano, Lido di Venezia
(4/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Visit isola di Murano, a series of islands linked by bridges in the Venetian lagoon, to see the area's world-famous artistic glass pieces. You can easily explore the 10 islands on foot. As you do, keep an eye out for the ancient furnace houses used to fire glass. Learn about the owners, participate in interactive presentations, and see the raw materials used to create the glass artwork. You will find all current glass workshops in Murano after a decree was warranted to move all glass-working shops to the area to avoid an outbreak of fires. Don't be afraid to ask locals about the fascinating history and their trade. Some other notable attractions here include Gothic and ancient churches like the SS. Maria e Donato, dating back to 1140, as well as the Murano Glass Museum. Consider buying a piece of the local trade, but only if you can ensure very careful handling of your luggage. Plan your visit to isola di Murano and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Lido di Venezia family vacation planner.

  • It has been nearly 40 years since the last time I was there, but it's always a thrill to dock by boat on the island. the only sour note was that we arrived too late (so we were told) to watch the production and its batch of glass ... too bad ... anyway it's not publicized as it should!
