Murano

(3.7/5 based on 2,600+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: museums, sightseeing, shopping
Murano is a series of islands linked by bridges in the Venetian Lagoon, northern Italy. It lies about 1.5km north of Venice and measures about 1.5km across with a population of just over 5,000 (2004 figures). It is famous for its glass making. It was once an independent comune, but is now a frazione of the comune of Venice.LocationMurano is composed of seven islands, linked by bridges, separated by eight channels.HistoryMurano was initially settled by the Romans and from the sixth century by people from Altinum and Oderzo. At first, the island prospered as a fishing port and through its production of salt. It was also a centre for trade through the port it controlled on Sant'Erasmo. From the eleventh century, it began to decline as islanders moved to Dorsoduro. It had a Grand Council, like that of Venice, but from the thirteenth century, Murano was ultimately governed by a podestà from Venice. Unlike the other islands in the Lagoon, Murano minted its own coins.
