Glass, Venice

Venice
Italy
Concierge.com's insider take:

To avoid the risk of fire, all glass furnaces in Venice were banished to the lagoon island of Murano in 1291. There they remain to this day, as anyone disembarking from the vaporetto in Murano and being hassled by furnace tour guides will find. But beyond the hard sell and the Taiwan-made glass animals lies a world of serious glassmaking. The maestri at Mazzega will allow you to watch them blowing their fine designs (if you call ahead to arrange it), while Barovier & Toso has a private museum of antique glass attached to its workshop (visits by appointment only). The wares at Marina & Susanna Sent's shop, which include these sisters' exquisite glass jewelry, is a cut above most others on the island. At the foot of the Rialto Bridge, the Attombri brothers incorporate antique glass beads and stunning beads of their own design into gorgeous one-of-a-kind necklaces and bracelets.
