  • Colleoni Glass Makers in Murano

Our guide was very friendly and after a brief walk we were taken to the boat. We were lucky enough to have time for a quick cappuchino before embarking. Our guide gave us some interesting details about the history of glass making and his personal journey and experiences which was great. It was an easy boat tour over to Murano Island. We were met again by some very friendly staff and got to watch a glass blowing demonstration. The skill of the glass blower was amazing, he even made a horse in less than one minute! Then we met a lovely young lady who helped us make bracelets from Murano glass. You could also have chosen to make earings or a mosaic. The bead options you could choose from were excellent and it was lovely to be able to take something home with you. Then we were allowed a look around their show rooms which are amazing. Everyone was very friendly and there was no pressure to buy things. We ended up buying a few things anyway as the craftmanship is stunning. There is something there for all budgets. We highly recommend this tour and enjoyed the experience.
