Murano the Glass Heart of Creativity in Venice

Just a 30 minute exhilarating water taxi ride from San Marco, Murano island is home to the world-class artistry of glass blowing and has a distinct local flavor within the Venetian lagoon. Valerio of de(Tour) will guide us on this enchanting behind the scenes tour to discover some hidden gems and educate us about the history of sand to glass. We’ll visit one of the oldest glass factories Barovier & Toso, active since 1295, where you will see tradition combined with contemporary design and creativity. As glass making runs in the veins of the Muranese, we’ll meet such a local in her studio. Monica of FerroVetro is known as “the Duchessa” and welcomed our goggled-group in real life last Maker Tourism tour. Monica taught us how to make glass beads in the 17th Century tradition, hands-on! It’s pure alchemy and you will never look at glass in the same way again.
