Highlight Of Our Trip

The highlight of my trip to Venice, Massimiliano was an amazingly talented and welcoming host who was able to give lots of interesting insights into the world of glass blowing. I would 100% recommend this tour, it was worth every penny

My husband and I went to Venice for a long weekend and this was definitely a major highlight of our trip! Massimiliano was so patient with us and helpful and we really learned a lot about working with the glass. We got to make our own piece after his tutorial and take it home. He was also very generous and offered us a discount on the beautiful pieces in his showroom. Would definitely recommend this experience to a friend!

Had the best afternoon learning all about the art of glass blowing and we loved the fact it was a private lesson . We were shown how to make a small glass bead/necklace we loved it - highly recommended

We had a wonderful time at the lesson! We learned about the history of glass making in Venice and Murano, got to see an awesome demonstration and then tried ourselves! It felt safe and guided but also like we really did it ourselves. Would definitely recommend it!

A Must in Venice

This was absolutely AWESOME. Both of us who attended had a great time. The experience was completely unique and unlike anything that we were able to experience in our time in Venice. He's very nice, funny, and positive! When you leave you'll have a new appreciation for the artistry that goes into glass work. I would recommend this to anybody who has the opportunity while in Venice. This was without a doubt the best thing I did while in Venice.

Amazing Time learning how to make glass artwork.

I can not begin to express how happy I am with this experience. Massimiliano Caldarone was wonderful. He explained the history of Murano glass and how it has been a guarded secret as to where the glass comes from for generations. He explained each step of the process demonstrating and then showing us how to properly do the process before we actually made the piece. We each made a beautiful pendant in the colors of our choice. We were so happy with this experience. I wanted to stay there all day making items. Not only was he great at explaining the process to us but his glass pieces are amazing pieces of art, which we are so happy to have one to call our own. It will be a wonderful conversation piece in our house and knowing the inspiration behind the piece just makes the artwork more of a treasure. I will definitely be doing this again next time we are in Venice. I can not recommend this enough. It will be the highlight of your trip to Venice - it was ours!!

This was an incredible workshop and we're so glad we did this. Not only was the artist very knowledgeable and speak very well in both English and French, he was friendly and a great teacher. The necklace you create is truly one of a kind and a perfect keepsake from your trip to Venice.

We were able to take advantage of this class when we were in Venice and it was very fun and informative. It was great to be able to leave with pieces we made personally as well as the instructional piece the artist created to demonstrate technique. The time went very quickly -- wish we would have been able to do more which to me is a sign of a good experience!
