    A great experience, the guide narrated in multiple languages without hesitation. The glass blowing was a really entertaining process to watch. We saw a glass made and a vase also glass sculptures made with incredible skill. The seating was tiered so everyone had a good view. A fantastic insight into murano glass.

    We visited the glassworks and attended a demonstration. The guide was very welcoming and pleasant. The little extra: he spoke French The second plus: with the reservation we were entitled to a reduction in the amount of the activity on our purchase Just a pity that the activity only lasted 10-15 minutes instead of 20 minutes .

    I loved the experience! They showed us how to work glass in Spanish. The experience included a demonstration of the making of a glass and a glass bull made on the spot by a glass craftsman. They told us how glass is colored and the different techniques. After the demonstration, what was paid for the activity remains as a credit to spend in the local product store. The prices in this store are overpriced (I found much better prices elsewhere). Can someone tell me that the other stores may have lower prices because perhaps they are industrial products... I don't know... but hey, keep this in mind to know what to buy and what not.
