Visit with the Glassblowers of Murano

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by leopardgrrrl88 on July 28, 2005

Murano is a great Venetian glass factory to tour. As one of the originals, it has quite a bit of history and interesting information to be learned along the tour. You get to visit the Murano showroom, see a demonstration of how the glass is made, and even learn how the glass is colored. Also, you learn the secret to telling the difference between a genuine Murano piece and a knockoff. Real Murano has a certain symbol on each piece, while the knockoffs do not. At the end of the tour, you get to enter their magnificent store to shop, and they offer a discount on a certain piece for each tour group. This is a relaxing environment where you can purchase a true Italian souvenir.
