““The island of Glass” The enchanting island of Murano is one of the most characteristic places in the Venetian Lagoon, as well as the most famous. Composed by seven minor islands, it represents the ideal location for a half-day trip, and a great break from the crowds of Venice. The Murano Island is internationally renowned for the art of glass making: an ancient craft tradition, handed down from generation to generation, that represents an inestimable richness for Venice. A few centuries ago, all the Venetian glass factories were moved to this island in order to protect the glass-making secrets. Today, the tradition continues and tourist can enjoy a visit to the Glass Museum or to the craft shops selling hand-crafted glass sculptures and souvenirs of rare beauty. The Murano Island also has several historical treasures, such as the Romanesque churches, as well as picturesque canals and good restaurants that serve local specialties. A tour to Murano is one of the best things to do if you are in Venice, not only to admire its beauty, but also to discover the authentic, ancient traditions of the city.”
