"Buy Some Glass - Lots of Glass" Isola Murano Tip by jlee008

Isola Murano, Venice: 46 reviews and 68 photos

If you want to buy glass, Murano is probably the best place to buy it. There is literally TONS of glass. If you are looking for that unique artisan piece or you just want to look for some little trinket to take home, this is the place to look. The same pieces that you see selling on Venice island are here in Murano, but much less expensive.

Hop on the vaporetto and head over to Murano for a free glass-blowing demonstration and then head into the multitudes of shops. If you are a glass lover, you can probably spend the entire day there.

Some of the shops there are part of the tax-free shopping system and some of them do their own tax-free forms. Just remember to get your customs stamp before leaving the European Union.
