Itinerary

Discover the ancient Venetian art of glassblowing on this private live virtual tour to the artistic island of Murano.

Your local Venetian tour guide will take you to a private glassmaking demonstration from a master craftsman. Get an inside look into the centuries-old art of glassblowing on Murano Island, home to the world’s finest glass artisans. Tour the factory and see a master craftsman shape molten glass through a combination of heat, blowing, and sculptural techniques. You will also visit the factory showroom to see beautiful finished works of art.


*During the winter months, your guide will substitute Murano Island with local glass shops that feature the works of Murano craftsmen. Your guide will also use photos and videos to help demonstrate how a master craftsman creates art using the ancient techniques of glass blowing found on Murano Island.
