Murano

Murano Venice
09.00 - 22.00 Murano

Murano is a tiny cluster of islands about a mile north of Venice and is well worth checking out if you happen to have a spare day during your trip. The island is mainly famous for Murano Glass which you may have seen in shops in Venice.

Your first stop should probably be the Basilica dei Santa Maria e San Donato which is on the Fondamenta San Lorenzo not far from the red line boat stop. It is most famous for its twelfth century Byzantine mosaic pavement and is said to contain the relics of Saint Donatus of Arezzo.

Another well visited spot is Campo Santo Stefano which has an amazing glass sculpture and a couple of lovely little cafes where you can sit outside, have a coffee and watch the bustle of the canal.

A visit to Murano is not complete without at least a look in the Glass Museum on the Fondamenta Marco Giustinian and one of the glass factories where you can see the magic happen.

For eats you have a surprising choice considering the small size of the island. Trattoria Ai Frati is just around the corner from the Murano Museum and the stunning views across the canal are only topped by the delicious menu.

As Murano is so small the best way to get around is using your feet and you will find that just wandering around the little streets and across the bridges will give you a lasting feel for the island.

Murano is a separate island to Venice so you will need to hop on a boat to get there. Head to Saint Mark’s Square and catch either the red line which runs every hour and drops you at the Murano Museum stop, or the blue line which runs every 30 minutes and terminates at Colonna on the south side of the island. The journey should take about 45 minutes to an hour and a round trip should cost around 15Euro. You can get a discount if you book online.
