Murano

Murano is an island in the Venetian Lagoon famous for its glass making[?].

Glass making has been present since 1292 when Venetian glass makers were forced out of the city because their kilns caused too many fires.

The Museo Vetrario (Glass Museum) houses a splendid collection that includes pieces from Roman times. Farther down the street stands the exceptional 12th-century Basilica di Santa Maria e San Donato, which contains the bones of the dragon slain by Saint Donatus.
