A really pleasant surprise. After reading reviews we thought it would be quite a boring island but it is far nicer in our opinion than its neighbour Burano. The glass blowing studio - first one you reach - had a really annoying assistant hurrying everyone along rather than letting them see the masters at work. Needless to say no one was interested in buying anything in the shop.
There are many many (too many) shops all selling identical glass products. Lots of coffee shops and restaurants with very friendly staff. Beautiful walkways and views everywhere.

We wanted to see Murano glass being made on the island of Murano which is a short waterbus trip from Venice. Very pleased we did. We did pre-book the night before but to be honest there wasn't any queues. We arrived earlier than planned but not a problem.

The demonstration by one of the masters only lasted 10 mins but was amazing to see how they make 2 items - blown glass vase and an amazing glass stallion which took a matter of seconds to make.

they have a beautiful showroom with amazing large scultures to look at and of course a shop to buy more cost effective items.

A visit to Murano is like stepping off of a roller coaster and into the shade of a nice tree and relaxing. It is still a Venetian experience, but at a calmer pace. Rather than the typical "junk" shops you can find in Venice, you find mom & pop owned stores with beautiful, cute or lovely glass items. There are good restaurants and places to have a drink of an ombre and cicchetti. Lovely place.

I must be getting cynical in my old age, but to me the boat ride out was excellent, and the museum was interesting, but after that the centre is purely a large shopping mall. Had we had more time I would have wanted to visit the other side of the island away from the countless shops and cafe's (assuming there was another side to the island).

We went here for the day, visiting Murano and then Burano-both are wonderful and worth the trip. When looking at the glass shops remember you do not have to buy anything, - and you may even find a shop where they blow glass in the back. If you are in Venice for more than 2 days, I would recommend this as an excursion.
