The Murano island; a not-so-identical twin brother of the Burano island is just a stone throw away from the other.
Of course, you can get there directly from the venetian canal too.
The houses, drinking hoses, the cobbled street, the hanging flowers were only a setting. We were the star cast.
At least, that’s how this place was making us feel. Straight out of a movie.
The island is famous for the Glass factory that produces Murano glass. Crystal colors shine in shops of
fancy glassware creations. The history of technique behind the specialty of Murano glass goes back to centuries ago
and is only manufactured on this Venetian Island.
Protected from China and other duplicate markets, it is lawfully stamped to differentiate.
As we walked into the island, this gigantic structure of Murano glass appeared like a fairy
waved a wand to create glass magic.
We stopped by the pick up point for our water taxi for a quick bite.
A beautiful light house tower besides the pick up point left us stalking the place for some more time.
Pumpkin lasagne and potato frittas felt just right for lunch. The walking makes you really hungry.
We ate and let the magic set in by the grande canal.
You might get a vibe of isolation and quietness on Island Murano, but nevertheless beauty of the main canal is omnipresent across the lagoon.
The glass factory itself will turn out to be a fascinating tour where you will get to learn the manufacturing process and various commercial applications of the Murano glass.
You must bring back a souvenir from the factory or the street side shops. To find the best creations out of the glass, we recommend you check out the factory shop first as island vendors will only have selective designs with higher prices.
We bought this colorful shot glass for our bar!
