>Afternoon in Murano (Part 1)

>

On my third day in Venice, Italy, I finally took the vaporetto to the Glass Island of Murano. Murano is actually a group of islands adjoined by bridges. It is about 30 minutes away from the main island of Venice.

Murano is known for the beautiful glass objects & beads that have been made there for centuries. I went there to see demonstrations of glass being made and to learn a little more about the history of Venetian glassmaking, so the first place I went was to the Murano Glass Museum. Since photography was not really allowed, here is just a sneak peek inside the museum.😉 Please click the pics to enlarge…
