  • For today we booked a tour in glassware with workshop. We were greeted in calle San Bartolomeo from driving Ludovico (person kind and attentive, ready to help if some of the group he needed it) that drove us to the Fondamenta Nuove for take vaporetto who took on the island of Murano. Li escorted us in glassware, where later a master glassmaker (beyond friendly and atteno so that everyone understood) took us inside, close to the furnaces, explaining its glass that was made by another master glassmaker. We could watch the production of a little boy and a little horse. All very interesting ... downside-we would have loved to have stayed longer to see the workmanship "non-touristic". After these explanations we switched to glass (with many pieces veramentene beautiful) to do the workshop. A very young lady greeted us and kind (as indeed all of the glassware Colleoni) and pointed out the two techniques we could choose: mosaic or beadwork ... And there we were for a moment disappointed because we thought we could make ourselves a glass bead and instead it is treated simply to accomplish something with pearls already made. (The making of beads on our part would have been dangerous due to the fire which would serve to complete.) Then after a moment of disappointment we had a lot of fun to realize our Bracelet with beads, sipping a cappuccino buonl offertocii by the factory. After the workshop everyone was free to purchase something in glassware with 20% discount ďi or to walk to the island of Murano.

  • I paid 20 € on one visit I discovered was offered for free to the vaporetto stop. 20 € I cmq could spend on items of glassware ... too bad I paid 10 € an object than in other shops in Venice was 1.5 €. Don't waste your money!

  • It was my first experience of seeing how glass is made and I really enjoyed it. I paid 10 euros per person for this tour and demonstration and got 10 euro credit to spent in the store of the glass factory. I ended up getting glass hors because I have sent one made, because it was 10 euro (free because I had a credit of 10 euro).the mane reason I didn't buy anything else is because it is much much much cheaper in Venice! I am talking 2-3 times cheap! So, 5 stars for experience and 1 star for prices.
  • My friends and I visited Vetreria Artistica Colleoni in May of 2016. It's a short walk from the ferry stop and upon entering the staff was welcoming and friendly. They offered a glass blowing demonstration/tour for 10 euros and told us that would be credited towards any purchase we made at the end of the tour. We accepted and watched one of the master glass makers work and then went on a short tour. The demonstration was fun, interesting and professional. The tour ended in the gallery where we took advantage of the 10 euro credit and bought some reasonably priced and beautiful gifts. The artists there create exquisite work. I would recommend Vetreria Artistica Colleoni to anyone visiting Venice/Murano.
  • We visited Colleoni glass factory in March 2016 with a group of my high school students on a school trip from Canada. We made arrangements to visit a few months in advance, via email with Ludo. It was 20 euros per person for a demonstration and a glass craft - which for most of our students involved making a bracelet, which they all loved and appreciated as a great souvenir. When we arrived Ludo was waiting for us, and they were ready to go. The glass demo was about 10 minutes, and the glass maker made a glass and a horse - which were both very impressive. Then we spent about 20-25 minutes making our bracelets. We then had time to shop while they finished up our bracelets for us. The items in the store are definitely beautiful, though of course expensive. However, our group still found some affordable items to take home and cherish.
  • We visited this glass factory in august 2016, it was the only shop opened on sunday. We paid 10 euro per pers. it includes a short demonstration for the glass preparation plus the possibily to buy one item from their shop (the item should be at 10 euro or u pay the difference). The glass pieces are magnificents.The staff were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our tour and we recommand it.
  • Interesting demonstration of glass blowing and molding. Shop prices range from clearance items to super expensive.
