Murano glass

Venice has a vast range of shops selling Murano glass in every shape and colour: interior accessories both large and small, precious glasses, gilded plates or vases, brightly coloured lamps and much more. If you like jewellery, how to resist buying an original millefiori pendant or a bead necklace in glowing colours.

But the home of Venetian art glass production is the island of Murano. Murano has a large number of furnaces where expert glass-makers produce all kinds of glass object, passing down their glass-blowing secrets from father to son.

Murano is home to some of the city's oldest glassmaking firms, many renowned worldwide like Venini producing glass vases and lamps which are objets d’art in their own right, Moretti with its lovely glass beads, millefiori beads and mosaics, or Salviati, famed for its opal and flamed glass.

Most of glass-makers allow tourists to watch the fascinating spectacle of glass-blowing and production; many of the furnaces have an adjacent showroom where you can admire and purchase the glass objects that struck your fancy: from lamps to ashtrays, from vases to tiny coloured animals.
