Glass Blowing-Venice

There was a ten minute demonstration, while they tried to sell us stuff the rest of time. The glass was pricy there, so you are better of buying glass at one of the smaller shops in Venice. Although, I did learn a little bit about making glass during the demonstration, so that was cool.

The experience was interesting, but its really just a short demonstration of glass blowing, then a brief talk on the Venetian history of glass, and then just a hard sell in the shop. No actual opportunity to do glass blowing.

the glass blowing demonstration was only about 5-10 mins long at the most. The translator was very good at explaining how they make the glass and the history of murano. if i were to do it again i would book the travel to the different islands and see the glass being made on murano island it self

Really enjoyable insight into glass blowing although would have been better if we had more time actually watching the glass blowing and not as much time trying to get us to buy from the shop. Our guide was very informative and did make it interesting so I would recommend it
