Murano glass blowing

by emmweb

When I was in Venice years ago, we traveled to Murano and were able to see quite a number of glass blowers working in their workshops... a very informal sort of thing: they'd have a door open and folks could see them from the sidewalks and go in. The blowers always seemed agreeable to chatting and showing off their skill. However, I now see quite a few places offering demonstrations. Is this the way to see glass blowing now, or might we still stumble across some artisans in their workshops as we walk the island?

Thank you,

Most of them have "showrooms" attached now where you can buy the products and it can be a little bit hard sell but nothing like in Egypt or Turkey.

I, too, have noticed this trend toward 'guided tours' of the furnaces.
I think 'health and safty' has kicked in and they now prefer to have small groups under the guidance of a representative of the fattoria.
It also gives them a better opportunity to then take you through to the showrooms for the sales routine.

Travel Tips for Venice

Piazzetta San Marco

by Fam.Rauca

The Piazzetta lies between the Basilica and the lagoon.
It was erected 1537, after Plans Sansovinos, precisely at the moment, since Venice made a name of pressure and book metropolis for itself.
Each visitor of Piazzetta gets there, a first impression of the shine and splendour of the republic.
The Doges Palace opposite, the Biblioteca Marciana arises, that belongs today, to the Museo Civico Correr.
The columns at the water come from the 12th century.
The winged lion, on the first pillar, is Persian or Syrian origin.
On the other column stands a statue of the sacred Theodor, the first protection patron of the city.

My Street

by zizkov

This was the bottom of my street in Venice, San Vio. Relatively wide, it starts near the Accademia, passes my hotel (Hotel American) and continues to the south of Dorsoduoro, through a mainly residential area.

Hystory or Story Telling ??

by dvideira

Concerning the "ferro", the decorative iron work on the front of the gondola....

The Venetians like to inform us, tourists, that its shape comes from the Doge's crown and the six fingers in it represent the six sestieri ( neighborhoods ) of the city, but it seems that there is no written proofs of this.
Once upon a time... tourists started taking rides in the gondola and asking what the decoration on the front stood for...

By the way.... this misty picture was not taken by me... My brother took it in 2002

Wine tasting (Cantinone già Schiave)

by lisha74

When in Italy, one must go wine tasting. What better place to do it than at the local bacari. Cantinone già Schiave is where our guide took us to get out of the rain, and it ended up being one of my best memories of Venice. Bottles of wine line the walls, but don't worry if choosing a wine seems a bit daunting - the employees will happily make recommendations. This place also had more of a local feel to it - which is rare in Venice, as tourists seem to overtake the more popular spots in the city.

Carnevale is very important to...

by rickyvilla81

Carnevale is very important to Venetians. An old, old custom, similar to the Spring Carnivals witnessed all around Europe, it was here that they did it hardest, ofetn carnivalling for six months at a time in the middle ages. The Masked Balls, famed the World over, are a bounty of colour and music. The Carnevales lost their verve after 1797, with the fall of the Republic, and were halted altogether during Mussolini's fascist regime in Italy - Il Duce had banned the wearing of masks. But they made a return (in a bid for even more tourist money, perhaps) in 1977, and have been growing ever since. You'll find fabulous mask shops all over town, my favourite being Ca' del Sol, at 4964 fondamenta de l'Osmarin, not far from San Zaccharia.
