The island of Murano

A small city in the Veneto region, it rises in the Venetian lagoon of five small islands separated by picturesque canals and connected by various bridges.

It is especially famous for its unique blown glass, created and worked by artisans specialised since the XIII century.

The art of glass achieved its maximum peak at the end of the XV century and in the XVI century and then continued until the fall of the republic and was only renewed during the second half of the XIX century. At the moment only some glass workshops are still open; the museum of glass art is extremely interesting.
