Things to know about Murano Island
Murano is one of the most important sights of the Venice Lagoon, as well as the most famous. Although often called the Island of Murano, it is actually an archipelago composed of seven small islands (the main of which is Murano), and has been inhabited since the Medieval times.
It is internationally known for its ancient craft traditions, entirely focused on the manufacture and decoration of glass: the Murano glass is one of the finest in the world, the result of an art that boasts centuries, handed down from generation to another.
In Murano, you will have the opportunity to visit the glass museum and the interior of some art workshops, but also some beautiful historical treasures, such as the Romanesque churches and a quaint marble lighthouse.
