Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Murano / Isola di Murano
Visit Isola di Murano, a series of islands linked by bridges in the Venetian lagoon, to see the area's world-famous artistic glass pieces. You can easily explore the 10 islands on foot. As you do, keep an eye out for the ancient furnace houses used to fire glass. Learn about the owners, participate in interactive presentations, and see the raw materials used to create the glass artwork. You will find all current glass workshops in Murano after a decree was warranted to move all glass-working shops to the area to avoid an outbreak of fires. Don't be afraid to ask locals about the fascinating history and their trade. Some other notable attractions here include Gothic and ancient churches like the SS. Maria e Donato, dating back to 1140, as well as the Murano Glass Museum. Consider buying a piece of the local trade, but only if you can ensure very careful handling of your luggage.

I went to Murano to get to know the process of manufacturing and production of a glassmaking. Soon afterwards I took a getaway through the streets of the island to see the most beautiful and relaxed side of Murano.
Una piccola Venezia, più pulita e meno affollata. Bellissima da visitare passeggiando in tutti i canali. Bellissimo anche il duomo more »A little Venice, cleaner and less crowded. Beautiful to visit while walking in all the canals. Beautiful also the Duomo
