Last Updated: 31st Aug 2012

The Galleria San Marco Glass Factory in Venice provides free glass blowing demonstrations to Contiki Tours visiting Venice, Italy. Although the island of Venice itself is not famous in itself for glass blowing, the island of Murano, just north of the city is world renowned for its glass making.

The San Marco Glass Factory employs some of the most well known and most creative ‘maestros’ in Venice and also sells authentic, hand made Venetian glass.

“To see an experienced authentic glass blower make a vase or a horse ın a matter of seconds, right before your eyes is a very cool experience… everyone leaves sayıng `whoa… how’d he do that!´”

- David Semmens, Tour Manager, Europe
