Plan a magnificent trip to Venice this summer with your family and witness the beauty and culture the city has to offer.
On Murano Island, you will catch a glimpse of authentic Venetian ways of life and culture in a less crowded tourist area.
It is not always surrounded and packed with visitors like the city of Venice always is year-round, so you will enjoy the tranquility and the traditions the island offers.
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.
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.
