    You can see how Murano glass is made. It is free of charge, but usually, after the “show” you want to buy everything. The show usually takes place in the shops where the glass is then sold. There are lots of these on the central “street” of Murano. There is no need to pay to anyone to guide you, it is easy to find these performances just walking along the street.

    Some kilns in Murano are open to the public: choose one to watch the expert master glass blowers creating an object in glass.
