If you came to Murano, you are probably after the animals, that is the glass animals. The island is known for its glass industry. The main street has virtually nothing but glass shops... Some with their own furnace (look for fornace signs). So, you can buy the local glass and watch how it's made. The glass blowers hold displays for the public where you can see how a little piece of melted glass turns into a beautiful glass horse.
