Wonderful Glass Blowing in Murano Jun 16, 2006
If you are visiting Venice and have time to visit the nearby islands, Murano might be at the top of your list, since it's the closest.

Just take the vaporeto and you will arrive a while later. Murano is famous because of its glass work. They have really nice art pieces.

But which is the most amazing is the technique they use: "blowing". Everything is hand made.

There are workshops you can visit and see the whole process.

They don't have an entrance fee, but you will have to leave a tip after the show. Just go into the workshops, sit down and admire this work.

In your way out you can buy a souvenir, but don't forget to wrap it very well, so it can make it back home.

Have you ever tried glass blowing? It takes a lot of breath to get the molten glass to balloon out from the blower stick. That would be fun if they let you try it.
