We took the waterbus to go to Murano Island and see the glass works as well as the island itself. Previously when we were here, we came with a tour group and never saw the island itself. It is less than a mile away from Venice, and it is spread over 5 islets. Known for its glass blowing industry which dates back to the 13th century, this is a nice place to visit.
