How to Find the Best Hotels in Murano, Venice with Hotels.com

Murano is a tightly packed set of seven islands located just north of Venice. It's famous for the glass makers who have furnaces located here. Tourists might wonder why anyone would locate manufacturing facilities on an island, but in 1291, the Venetian Republic was worried that the glass foundries in the city would set the many wooden buildings on fire. They ordered the glass makers to move their operations to the islands, where they have been making their famous glass vases, chandeliers, and jewellery ever since. There are a small number of hotels on Murano, so you should check the availability of rooms on Hotels.com. before you arrive. Enter the dates when you need rooms for a list of all of the available hotels in Murano, Venice. The images of each accommodation and the guest reviews are two of the resources Hotels.com provides to help you pick your ideal hotel room.

What's Murano Like?

There are numerous glassware shops to visit, so if you find yourself in a crowded gift shop, you should be able to walk a few steps down the canal way and find other, less crowded places to hunt for gifts. Many glass artisans will let you observe them as they make their creations, and there are both free and paid opportunities to tour the foundries. Some of the glass sold in the tourist shops isn't made in Murano, so check the labels if you have your heart set on purchasing locally made glass. Jewellery is a good gift to bring home to loved ones, since it is less likely to break in transit, if wrapped securely, than vases or other glass decorations. Near the Faro, or local lighthouse, is a great area where you can relax after a day shopping for colorful trinkets.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Murano, Venice

Since Murano entertains tourists from all over the world, finding English speaking staff in the islands should be no problem. Since Murano sees the brunt of its tourists during daytime hours, hotels sometimes trade the duty of keeping their kitchens open for late night meals, so ask the concierge for a schedule if this applies to your hotel. History lovers should check out the museums in Murano. The Museo Vetrario has samples of glass from ancient Egyptian times to the present. Also remember: To be certain you'll be one of the lucky tourists who get to stay in Murano, book your rooms early on Hotels.com. The process takes only minutes, but gives you back the priceless peace of mind that comes from knowing your preferred rooms are reserved with Hotels.com.
