Fabulous few hours exploring the off-beaten paths of Murano from a local! Valerio was very helpful and knowledgeable and the small group made the whole tour even more memorable and personalised. Definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to explore the genuine Murano and support the local artists !

Fantastic tour with Valerio! He was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Murano and glassblowing and showed us all the cool spots. He is also well connected within the community and introduced us to a local jewelry maker, Monica, as well as to Chiara who runs an incredible glass factory. We watched her do a live demonstration and were even lucky enough to try it ourselves. Highly recommend!
