Discover Murano Island the glass island and create your necklace and parfume

ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE A guided tour to discover the island of Murano and its traditions, and unveil the secret of the glass which has made the island famous worldwide Choose between two experiences: Create "Your Necklace" of Venetian beads - under the watchful eye of an expert and following their suggestions, you can create your own necklace in the colours and size you choose.  (The setting is included in the cost, while the beads are not, and are payable directly to the craftsman.)

(On request it is possible to create a personalised glass flask or vial with names or a dedication engraved; the cost of this is not included and is payable directly to the craftsman.) Walking tour The guided tour starts from the Basilica of San Donato, founded in the 10th century and home since 1125 to the body of San Donato, brought from Kefalonia after its conquest by Doge Michiel. The church's singular form makes it a rare example of Romanesque style in the lagoon, and its interior contains some particularly splendid mosaics. You will also discover the treasures housed in the church of San Pietro, built in 1511, which include masterpieces by Tintoretto and Bellini, evidence of the island's wealth. Murano's last church, but equally important, is the former church of Santa Chiara, founded as an Augustinian monastery in 1231, subsequently a convent for the Franciscan order of Santa Chiara, and restored in 1519. Napoleon put an end to the church's religious role, and it became one of the island's principal sites of glassmaking activity. In the church of Santa Chiara you will learn about man's ancient links with glass, a relationship made special by the nature of the only lightweight, ductile material that can be shaped to create items of everyday use. At the end of this memorable journey, each couple will be given a glass souvenir to remind them of their visit to Santa Chiara and Murano. And on top of that a tour of Murano Island that will take you through different stages: Making glass - you will witness an object coming into being before your very eyes, thanks to the secrets of master glassmakers and using the techniques of blowing and lampworking. Glass and people - Venetian glass beads are celebrated all over the world for their colours and lustre, and have been used to make every kind of necklace. Glass and the home - discover the importance of glass in past and present in its many uses around the home, in mirrors, chandeliers, windows and hourglasses. Above all, thanks to Murano glass, by the year 1500 Venice was the only city to have glass windows in every house and lamps in every room. Glass and the table - the story of glass used to preserve foodstuffs, with bottles, vials and carafes. Glass is always with us, now as in the past, as we drink from glasses and eat from glass plates, or take tea in special cups reminiscent of porcelain.

CARNIVAL WALKING THEATRE SHOW

In Venice, from the mid-fifteenth century, the nobles and the wealthy would walk preceded by a servant called "Codega" equipped with a lantern to light their path in the darkness of night, who would delight them with anecdotes and stories. Today, your personal host will guide you through the maze of mystery that forms the city. A leap in the past which will inspire you to be the actors in a moving mise-en-scene and will push you to the heart of the Serenissima Republic and its Carnival. This is the way to discover the city's secrets! You will learn about Casanova and the Levantine, about the gondolier that become a priest and about the elephant that found shelter in a church. You will discover why an angel was put as a palace guardian and why the bridge between two convents was called "The Devil's Bridge", but also the secret language of fans and the legends of a number of ghosts that are said to inhabit Venice today. Through the stories of the “Codega” the visitors will be escorted to unusual and secret places, away from the chaotic hustle and bustle of Carnival, to find out some interesting facts of the history and daily life of the Serenissima Republic.
