The inside story

A memorable trip in the romantic city of Venice cannot be complete without a visit to the islands of Murano and Burano, which are part of the municipality's most famous Italian lagoon. You will just need a half day for this excursion, but our advice is to dedicate an entire day to fully enjoy the charm of these islands.

The name of Murano echoes around the world thanks to the art of its master glassmakers. The glass came to Venice around the year 1000 and, thanks to commercial relations with the East, the techniques of glassmaking reached the highest level. However, around the year 1100, due to pollution and the danger of fires, furnaces were banned from Venice and moved to the nearby island of Murano. Here families handed down the secrets of glass art from generation to generation. Nobody in the world has managed to equal them and still today the Murano Glass brand is a guarantee of excellence and creativity. On the island you can visit the kilns and the Glass Museum and see artisans at work, as well as buy nice souvenirs to take home in memory of your trip.
