First easy to find, then wait in the store where you can discover all the creations of the house, magnificent, then go to the workshop where a demonstration is carried out by a glass professional, and we could see the dexterity and know-how of it. Realization of a small glass horse and a vase. Explanations were in English. Possibilities to buy 1st choice but also 2nd choice products more affordable. Good visit.

Nice, but also free in Murano

There was no factory tour. You could only visit the showroom, which you can do without a ticket, and you could watch a vase and a unicorn being made of glass. The whole thing took about 15 minutes. While the glassblower was working, a guide told something about it in English. There was no German, although we chose German in getyourguide. Then you could go shopping in the showroom with a 10% discount on everything with yellow and white signs. You got a 50% discount in the jewelry department. It was very nice, but we would not do it again. The name "factory tour" is simply not true and in Murano there are countless glassblowers with the door open and you can watch without paying.

We were taken to the show once we got there. There is no line, no waiting time. After the show, we were taken to the shop, the stuff is priced slightly higher than regular shop, but given there is no charge to the show, we bought 2 small souvenir but there is no pressure of buying.
