  • The tour of the glass making was okay, it could have been more interactive. We were then led into the shop where we were asked if we wanted to buy anything repeatedly. We were led to the most expensive items and once it was clear we were not going to buy any of these, we were led to the cheaper section of the shop where we were still just trying to be forced to buy things. We left pretty quickly.
  • Don't bother going to the Murano glass factory - it's all geared up like a well oiled machine to flog you loads of massively overpriced glass you can buy anywhere else in Italy for a fraction of the price. Also, there's so much of it out there that whatever you buy will be worthless the moment you've parted with your hard earned euros. Save your money.
  • Part of the tour of Murano which is famous worldwide for Artisan Glassmaking. This gallery and workshop produce exquisite mirrors, chandeliers and exotic glass blow art. Some of the detailed chandelier sell upwards of 20000 euros with less expensive available. The average Artisan glassmaker is in the business for about 20-30 years at this factory. They showed us how the glass is started and shaped with heat, spinning and different tools, while adding rich and vivid colors. It all starts from sand. What I found most interesting is that different designer glass artists have very specific colors only they can include on glass art. Think something along the lines of a Tiffany Blue. They are identified through their colors. They had some pieces that were unbelievably small and intricate, like a macaw statue. We were a bit afraid of backing into something. Definitely not a place for small children as there are way, way too many very expensive pieces to knock over. A wonderful place to visit
  • Very impressive hand-blown glass but crazy expensive.
  • Went here on a tour and as amazing as the glasswork is, the demonstration wasn't great (you just watched them make a cup and they dont say anything) and you are then guided into their gallery where you're asked if you want to buy everything you look at
