The Magic Art of Glassblowing
Watch a glass craftsman create a unique art piece, like magic, right in front of your eyes. While this mesmerizing art form comes to life, you'll hear all about its ancient history and techniques.

At the end of your experience, you will receive a small glass souvenir as a memento of this visit.
