You can order an authentic Venetian dish at the local restaurants in Murano.
Sarde in Saor is an antipasto (appetizer) dish composed of sweet and sour marinated sardines with onions, crunchy pinoli (pine nuts) and succulent raisins.
There are many shops around Murano Island that sell the renowned exquisite Murano glass as well as numerous museums and factories that can be toured during the day.
Tourists visiting the island especially enjoy the demonstrations of the glassmaking process by the talented glass-makers.
The actual method of glassmaking is extremely complex and detailed; not exactly how it is seen in the demonstrations in Murano! The glass is made of silica which melts into a liquid form under higher temperatures and as it cools, it goes soft enough in order to be shaped by the skilled artist.
