When we went to Murano glassworks I expected to see glassblowing demonstrations and this far exceeded my expectations. Not only did they show us the glassblowing for a vase, but also a drinking glass, then they made a specialty item…a horse up on 2 legs....More
This was worth a boat ride across the bay to see this glassblowing factory. They offered a demonstration and discussion of the glassblowing process. It was amazing to see a glass master craft a glass horse in a matter of minutes. The pieces in the...More
Well worth a visit to murano. Our hotel arranged a free tour. Was super to see the glass blowing demonstration. Some beautiful pieces but big prices. Downstairs more affordable pieces worth buying. Not a show room to take young children into some of the pieces...More

The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and
Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
