Murano Glass Showroom
The Ellegi Murano Glass exhibition space: over 600 square meters on two floors. On the ground floor, there is a large collection of gifts and costume jewelry, while the first-floor houses works of art, vases, and sculptures. A real museum where you can admire the work of master glassmakers and buy what you like.
The Glass Factory
In our glass factory, next to the Murano showroom, is the ancient furnace, the nerve center of the entire production of glass objects and works. A place that for almost 100 years has continued to offer visitors from all over the world the spectacle of blown glass and hot molded sculpture.

Welcome to Murano, home of artistic glass
A walk in Murano always provides emotions that are difficult to forget. Like Burano, like Torcello, and like Venice, even Murano hides treasures and riches of inestimable value. One of these is the tradition of artistic glass processing by hand, with simple, artisanal tools, the same ones that were used centuries ago in the Syrian-Palestinian region. Many things have changed since then, but not the original technique of shaping glass into small and large masterpieces. Vases, chandeliers, ornaments, statues, jewelry: unique works because they are made one at a time and not in series as in industry.
All this is part of our culture and lives unaltered in each of our guided tours of the Elledi Murano Glass factory. Visitors can count on well-prepared and competent staff, able to explain each step in the chosen language, in synchrony with the actions of the master glassmaker. The workers in charge of producing the objects then sold in the Ellegi Glass Shop also work around the furnace. Our factory is in a strategic position because it is a short distance from Venice by sea and because it faces the canal where the ferries and taxi boats that bring tourists here dock. In just a few steps you get off the boat and enter the glass factory, ready to start the guided tour and watch the show.
Our decades of experience allow us to cater for everyone’s needs, from couples with young children to school groups, offering a comprehensive and accessible service. To round off the visit, a tour of Murano’s calli and campi is a must, and you can continue to explore the town on your own, with cafés where you can sip a cappuccino and restaurants where you can sample typical local dishes.
