Murano Wheelchair Accessible Tours

The Island of Murano is located in the Venice lagoon and tells a story carved over the centuries the life of fishermen, artisans and a population that lived close to the great Serenissima Republic.

Founded by the Romans, Murano was originally a fishing port and a salt production center.

Murano was completely independent, it even minted its own currency and only in 1200 did it come under the dominion of Venice, a commercial power whose tentacles spread throughout Europe and beyond.

The great development and wealth of Murano began with the decree of 1291 which forced all the glassworks in Venice to move to the island, as they are easily subject to fires and a source of danger for the city itself.

Murano is famous all over the world for its traditional glass production.

On the island there are many workshops and ancient factories where you can admire the original technique used in the blown glass process, handed down by entire generations of craftsmen.

Touring Murano

As good traders, the Venetians knew that the best way to avoid "leaks" and to protect the traditional processes and trade secrets of glass, was to confine everything to a limited place.

For a period Murano was the main center of glass production in all of Europe.

Blowers refined and perfected their art until Murano glass became famous all over the world.

The glass-blowing masters of the island enjoyed a privileged status and a lot of prosperity, but at the same time they had severe restrictions, such as the possibility of leaving Venice only with permission from the Republic.

Whoever left the city without this was "banished" and could not go back to being a glassmaker any longer.

Those who allowed themselves to sell the "secrets" of the art of blowing abroad also risked the death penalty!

By the end of the XVI century, however, some Murano glassmakers left for other parts of Europe and the industry spread to other countries.

Murano's position and prosperity suffered a severe blow.

Glass, however, is the protagonist of Murano even outside the factories.

Just enter the Basilica of Santi Maria e Donato or the Church of San Pietro Martire to admire magnificent glass works such as chandeliers and decorations.

As soon as you get off the ferry, the best thing is to start by taking a walk around the island and along its Grand Canal.

As well as getting away from the more touristy streets to explore its picturesque alleys and shops.

You can start your tour at the Murano Lighthouse, the lighthouse that was first opened in 1912 and continues to function as an active lighthouse today.

Being an island, Murano can only be reached by sea.

When you get off the vaporetto on this island, it seems to be in a miniature Venice!

In fact, Murano is in turn made up of 5 small islands divided by a central canal called the “Grand Canal”, just like the famous one in Venice.
