Murano - Review

Venice’s state as a floating city leads to the creation of some unique neighbourhoods. On such neighbourhood is the Murano, a collection of seven islands linked by bridges. These islands are:

  • Sacca Mattia
  • San Donato (find the Church of Santa Maria e San Donato)
  • San Teresa e San Mattia
  • San Giacomo e San Maffio
  • San Pietro Martire (find the church of San Pietro Martire)
  • Sacca Serenalla
  • San Chiara e San Stefano

Originally settled by Romans, the islands prospered on the fishing and salt industries. The Monastery of St. Michael was founded and went on to become an important learning and printing centre, eventually producing the famous map-maker Fra Mauro.

But the islands today are most famous for their glass-making workshops, an industry created in the 13th century as a result of glassblowers having to move out of Venice to prevent fires. Over the centuries, the islands became major exporters of glassware and the community became quite affluent. Some of the most glassware brands come from this island.

Sights on the island:

  • Museo del Vetro
  • Palazzo de Mula
  • Chiesa dei Santi Maria e Donato
  • Santa Maria degli Angeli

Murano, Venice Reviews

Google+
  • Very beautiful island full of gorgeous hand crafted glass products. You cannot go wrong with any purchase at all! They have small trinkets to giant lamps. See if you can get a tour of the back where they make glass.

  • Murano is popular for glass arts making. From Venice, it took 15-20’ boat ride to go there. Beautiful island, more relaxing, learning more about glass making, walk along the main canal and check out art glass shops or enjoy a cup of coffee or wine and fantastic view. Definitely worth to visit when visiting Venice.

  • Very nice place. You can enjoy the pitoresque streets, the canals, the colors of Murano and of course the exceptional Murano glass. A trip worth taking

  • This place is beautiful! If you go, go by public transportation because it's cheaper and you can spend longer there. The glass shops are cheaper outside the glass places tourist companies take you, so don't be fooled. The island isn't too big and you might spend a hour there at most. Get a day pass on the public transportation and see all the islands!

  • It is really worth to see this amazing glass making industry in this small island of Venice . You can take a boat ride excursion for 20-30 € . Close to St Marco Basilica there is a tour company taking people to this island trip of Murano Burano Torcello . See my picture here
