Excellent glass blowing demo but factory tour was just the showroom

We really enjoyed the glassblowing part of the tour but the ‘factory tour’ was just viewing their (admittedly lovely) glassware. You do get a good discount on anything you want to buy but I was expecting something different from the factory tour (I thought we’d learn more about the materials etc)

A lovely little tour in a glass factory and an amazing opportunity to observe a master artisan at work only a few steps away. Our guide Giovanni was lovely, gave us lots of interesting explanations and kindly answered all our questions in detail. Also the price of the tour was entirely discounted from our purchases at the end of the tour.

It was really informative and the people really nice!

It was great service. By the time we got there (we were a little late) the tour had already started, but they told us to wait a little bit at the store and then we joined the next group, so we wouldn't miss anything. When we got there, they told us what we had payed for the tour could be used as credit for the store (since I bought tickets for my wife and I, we had 20€) and if we bought something more expensive we would get a 20% off on top of that. So we had a great and very interesting demonstration/tour, looked at many incredibly beautiful pieces on their exhibition floor and ended up with a very nice vase for our home at no extra cost. Very enjoyable!
