Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Discover the Murano glass tradition by watching and working with local masters and craftsmen.
    Depart from Venice city center with our authorized local guide, and walk for approximately 15 minutes through hidden streets before reaching the Murano island by public transportation (not included).
    Visit Colleoni Glass Factory and assist in a private performance of an expert glass master with a demo of blowing and sculpture technique. Then, choose one of the available workshops and make your own object in Murano glass.
    Whichever type of activity you choose will permit you to work with a local craftsman and make your personalized item.

    Staff are all very friendly and informative. Glass sculptures are definitely worth seeing as they come in many different sizes, shapes, colors, and styles. So many to see. Highly recommend!!
