Murano IslandMurano is a small island world-famous for its glass. Once upon a time Murano glassblowers were the only people in Europe who knew how to create a mirror and their skills were so valued that they were banned from leaving the city of Venice under threat of execution.
Glassbower's workshopWatch a craftsman in action as he goes about his daily business and listen to a description of the process in English while he works. Afterwards you will have time to browse the huge collection of glass art here and wander the island on your own.
Burano IslandThe tiny island of Burano is famous for its houses, uddled tightly together along streets and canals, each one is painted a different color, with laundry strung up across the narrow streets.
Lacemaking workshopBurano is known for its old tradition of lacemaking. Watch women at work, listen to a full commentary on what, in the age of sewing machines, has become a dying art and then take the time to explore the fascinating lace samples on display.
