Making Memories in Murano: A Romantic Trip to the Island of Glass

Travel & Tourism
Ah, Venice: the city of dreamy streets, glistening canals, and spectacular architecture. What could be more romantic than taking your one and only on a honeymoon to The Floating City? After all, there’s plenty of enchanting activities to keep you entertained in Venice. Walking tours will keep you active; lavish, candlelit dinners will appeal to your inner romantic; and gondola rides will allow you to fully immerse yourself in the city’s beauty.

But while Venice has a lot in store for starry-eyed couples, there’s one activity that takes romance to a whole new level: a daytrip to the nearby Murano. Let me tell you what awaits you and your significant other on this legendary island of glass.

Explore the Island Hand-in-Hand

Murano, which is situated just north of Venice, has been famous for its glass production since the late 1200s. However, that’s not the only reason that the island is so popular among tourists and Venetians alike: its dazzling medieval edifices and squares are another excellent motive for visiting this world-famous site.

Just picture it: you and your precious companion strolling through cobbled streets, marvelling at charmingly colourful houses, and taking in the breathtaking beauty of churches and palaces on a Venice walking tour. I highly recommend setting aside some time to explore the seventh-century Church of Santa Maria e San Donato, whose Byzantine mosaics from the twelfth century are a lovely sight to behold. What’s more, the island’s striking medieval squares offer lots of sunny spots for enjoying an espresso or a gelato in the company of your better half.

Discover the Glassmaking Industry Together

In search of an activity that will make the memories of your honeymoon last a lifetime? Then look no further than exploring Murano’s eminent glass industry.

What’s so special about the island’s glass, you may ask? First of all, its glassmakers were once the only European artisans who were able to make glass mirrors. And, as if that weren’t impressive enough already, many of their other pioneering methods are still used today: they came up with sensational techniques for creating crystalline glass, multi-coloured glass, milk glass, and enamelled glass, just to name a few.

Although artisans’ techniques were well-protected secrets for hundreds of years, visitors have the unique opportunity to experience the art of glassmaking firsthand in today’s day and age.

Experience the Craft of Glassmaking Firsthand

Although you may get a glimpse into the island’s glassmaking industry by popping into local shops, you’ll want to make your honeymoon as special and memorable as possible. For this reason, I always advise my clients to supplement a much-needed Venice walking tour with ArtViva’s guided excursion, which allows you to immerse yourself in Murano’s unique craft. Not only will you receive a special tour of Murano’s private glass galleries, but you’ll also be able to experience the craft of glassmaking firsthand by visiting a renowned artisan workshop – perhaps you’ll even be able to keep some of the glass as a souvenir! This truly one-of-a-kind experience is perfect for a romantic getaway, and will be a fond memory that you and your spouse will cherish forever.

Buy Your Beloved a Special Gift

There’s nothing quite like buying an exceptional gift for your number one to remind them of how special they are to you. Luckily, Murano is the ideal spot for acquiring stunning souvenirs: from glass beads and sparkling jewellery to suitcase charms and even chandeliers, the island’s seemingly endless supply of gorgeous gifts promises not to disappoint. Whether you’d like to choose souvenirs together or surprise your flame with a perfect present after your visit, Murano glass will definitely get you a well deserved page in your partner’s good books.
