This is the 2nd to the last itinerary of our tour - we were treated to the actual glass blowing skills of the masters. Very impressive to see how they create works of art!

It's amazing to watch the factory craftsmen use long metal pipes to blow and shape the vases, cups and bowls. Don't forget to visit the Restaurant upstairs!!
