Free taxi from Hotel Ala. First they show the artisan work, then take you to their showroom. Beautiful pieces of crystal art. Something different to do in Venice. I think the vaporetto goes to Murano too.

We bought a lovely vase here, all work is good quality. We recommend anyone who comes to Venice to visit Murano and particularly the Glassworks to buy authentic Murano glass.

We just received the two purchases we made a few weeks ago in the store. They have many beautiful pieces. The quality is tremendous and there was no pressure. We are really pleased with the pieces and would return again.
