Murano – A Day Trip from Venice, Italy.

21sep151

Well, there are so many options to explore more of Venice and one particular spot that is consistently bustling with tourists is always said to be Murano. Murano is just 1.5kms away from Venice and there are also frequent water transports available at your own convenience. So, if you are looking for a day trip that is not too far from Venice yet still would like to spend most of the daytime by walking and strolling through the galleries and buying glass souvenirs, then Murano is the quintessential location for it. By the way, the above picture is one of the parking bays in the centre of Murano.

Moreover, there are plenty of gelato and sandwich shops are available at any time of the day and these shops are scattered all across the lanes to fulfil every thirst-quenching hungry customer needs; plus, the neat and tidied stone tiled pathways gives a phenomenal ambience for the globetrotter to make themselves comfortable while on their memorable journey.

Besides too, Murano has some unique features where you can’t see anywhere else as the canal in here runs right in the middle of the island and either part of the canal is always adorned with glass makers, souvenir shops, glass galleries and restaurants. In further, to make the whole bustling atmosphere even more lively, there are also several small bridges that runs across the canal and they look so gorgeous to see and it is such a pleasure to watch too.

Furthermore, if you are looking for any kind of glass statement pieces, then sky is the limit as these Murano shops are filled up with thousands of souvenirs to collectibles that includes: rings, bracelets, watches, animal collections, flower collections, vases, earrings, necklaces, pendants, chandeliers, lamp shades, coasters, bowls, plates and many more. And, the interesting part is that most of these glass shops have their magnificent glass making workshops at their backyard and luckily, I had a great chance to get a sneak peek into some of the glass making techniques that they use – Oh my goodness! the amount of work those tradesmen put in is certainly a hats off job as it is such a tremendous piece of hard work to do in their day-to-day work schedule.

After getting stuffed up with bag full of fantastic collectibles, the next mandatory stop would be Venice and I should definitely say that not only Murano is so good, the entire trip is like a treasure land that has a plentiful of architectural monuments and buildings that spread all across the water channel that dates back many centuries before.

Look at the ancient settlements that has so much flare for architectural excellence and most of these structures are mostly dominated by domes and towers and it is such a historical place to explore at least once in your lifetime.
