An exemplary day out in Venice. There is nothing touristic on offer here, we are being lead by three Venetians, enabling you to understand the life beyond the mass tourism of Venice. Andrea, born on Murano, is an accomplished artist in various forms and a contemporary glass expert. Cristina, his partner, is also an artist (they work extensively together) and will assist the group with her english and knowledge of Venice and Murano. Finally we have Nicoletta, owner of one Venice's most successful wine bars, who is going to give you an expertly guided wine tasting of the wines from Veneto.

On this page we give you an idea of the day as it will unfold. We outline the time line of the activities, the inclusions and finally we give you some more background on Murano and other information you may find useful for Venice.

Venice & Murano – Glass Making & Wine Experience – Testimonial

Nearly three years ago, I stumbled upon Robertson Wine Tours on the Internet, and Tim Robertson planned the most amazing honeymoon for us in South America. When my husband asked me to join him on business trip to Venice and told me we would be entertaining two of his clients and their wives, I immediately thought of Robertson Wine Tours. When we contacted to Tim, we were disappointed to hear that many of the local wineries were not possibilities because of a local wine festival. However, the alternative Tim planned for us was amazing, and he did not disappoint. He arranged for 2 local glass artists to take us on a tour of Murano, and they showed us not only a wonderful glass blowing demonstration, but also the most incredible glass museum that was not yet open to the public. They also took us to a really amazing glass bead shop where I picked up a beautiful and unique necklace at a great price.

My husband and I have traveled extensively, and we both can say that this museum was one of the most incredible spaces we have seen. A very old building with incredible glass displays. Following our tour of the museum, the wine tasting began. We had a wonderful local seafood lunch with delicious wine pairings. After lunch we ventured back to Venice, and we enjoyed a tasting at a local bar. Overall, the day was spectacular, and my husband’s clients were happy and impressed. If you are looking for a unique experience in Venice and Murano paired with wonderful wine, then this is the tour for you.
