Murano Island - Where Glass Was Made

When in Venice, a vist to Murano island is a must. We were delighted to find that Hilton provides private water taxi to and from Murano for free. So, let's pop on! The journey took us about 25 minutes. The view was absolutely stunning! It was just me and my fiancĂ© on the boat, and we were surrounded by the beautiful water. What an incredible experience! 

When we reached the island, the glass factory owner gave us a tour. There was also a glass artist demonstrating to us how the glass was made. He kept turning and turning the burning hot glass and a few minutes passed, he made a horse out of it. It was like magic!

After the tour at the factory, we went to the glass museum where they have show rooms for the ancient glassware. I was so intrigued by the delicate glass and the amazing workmanship hundreds of years ago . We then found a cafe near the canal and had some lunch. I had the famous kettle fish spaghetti. It looks a bit disgusting but really tasty. We just sat there, bathing in the warm sunshine and looking at the canal. It was so peaceful.
