My husband and I really enjoyed our glass experience with Massimiliano! It was such a fun activity and we loved being able to bring home a little piece of Venice with us. If you get the opportunity, we both highly recommend booking with Massimiliano! You won’t be disappointed!!

One of the highlights of our trip to Venice! Our host was friendly and welcoming, and passionate about his craft. The demonstration was fascinating and he told us lots of details about the techniques and history of glass blowing. When he taught us how to make our glass pendants he was kind and patient and made sure we were feeling safe working with the tools and glass. Really happy to take home our pendants that we each made as a memory of our time in Venice. We also picked up some Christmas presents for family from his collection of glass art. Can't recommend this enough!

This was the big highlight of my time in Venice. To watch his skill in the art of glass was amazing! His instruction was very easy and he gets you right into the craft. He had me practice before actually getting into the fire. I had the best ime and made a great glass charm. In addition I purchased the piece he made while teaching me how to work with glass. So worth the money and time. Thank you so very much for your time and knowledge of this craft!

100% recommend!! A fabulous way to spend an hour and a half in Venice and then leave with a glass treasure that you made yourself! Massimiliano is a very skilled artisan and he was incredibly helpful walking us through each step to make sure we felt comfortable while working with the glass. It truly gives you a new appreciation for the skilled craftsmanship it takes to make glass!

It was a great experience to look over the shoulder of a local glass artisan and also to be able to make something on our own. Massimiliano told us about the glass making and the history behind it. We enjoyed it a lot.
