Glass

Hi all
This short post deals with Glass, not a common glass, Google glass but Murano Glass.
Murano is located 1.5km north to Venice, and is easily accessible by a boat service from Venice. It is well know for centuries for its unique glassware produces there, usually used for bracelets, watches rings etc.
However there are many types of glass made art done in Murano, and the following photos show some of those that are exhibited in the streets (or more accurately canals):







Aside of the glass, the island is not glamours as Venice, and most of the houses can be in a better shape...
The good thing, however, is that the number of tourists is considerably lower compared to Venice, and it possible to enjoy the unique environment.
