Well, I couldn't help myself, after seeing the 5 minute demonstration where the guy miraculously made a horse from a blob of glass,and then shown through the different rooms full of beautiful creations. The manager wasn't over pushy, but did play to my (maybe side)...More

We chances upon Vecchia Murano while strolling along the streets of Venice. We joined a tour group that was scheduled for a glass blowing demonstration. It was an interesting display of skill and mastering. As expected, there was a sales pitch in the end. To...More

Picked up from our hotel for a 'tour'. It was a short demonstration followed by a long attempt to get us to buy. The charm of the tour guide (sales staff) vanished once he realised he was not going to make a sale.

Prefer Burano than Murano apart from seeing a glass show how it is done the area was quite dead and I thought it was worth exploring but it looked like this land was forgotten and not been cared about.

We were part of a tour group set up by Globus, a company that does tours in many nations. Our tour started in Amsterdam and ended in Paris and the Murano Glass tour in Venice was arranged by Globus.
