This glass factory shopping transfer is available free of charge with the Venice in One Glorious Day Special, or the Rick Steves Readers Special Discounted Italy Grand Tour Special and Grand Tour Italy plus Best of Tuscany Discount Package.  

If your hotel does not have water access and/or is not on the main island of Venice, an alternative meeting point for this transfer will be offered. This is a transfer that takes you to a prominent glass factory on the Island of Murano. It is not a guided tour. The factory is a commercial enterprise that sells artisan-made Murano glass. If you prefer to make your own way to Murano, you could take a public boat and visit the Island of Murano independently. We can also organize private transfers and private guided tours to the Island of Murano. Please contact us if you would like more information. Vouchers may be utilised only once towards a single purchase and are non-accumulative.
