Island of Murano


The island famous for its artistic glass craftsmanship

Not far from Venice, located in the Northern Lagoon, is Murano. Built on 7 islands, it is known worldwide for its artistic glass work.

Once there, you can immediately immerse yourself in the world of glass production by visiting the furnaces where the famous blown glass is made. You'll see master glassmakers at work as they create their masterpieces.

You can then continue the tour of the island and discover the ancient churches, such as the Cathedral of Murano and the Church of San Pietro Martire. Cross the only bridge over the Murano canal, visit the Glass Museum and discover the other characteristic areas such as the Clock Tower and the Lighthouse.

As evening falls, the island empties of tourists and the slow rhythm of the tides resumes, lapping the shores to be admired in all its beauty.
