Murano Glass may be one of my favorite things in life. I love spending time in Venice, Italy – but escaping to the island of Murano provides me with hours of entertainment. The plethora of jewelry and vases in the shops is just the beginning. Abstract colorful sculptures around the island and factories making little glass horses are another. Top it off with an amazing lunch involving classic Italian food and of course a delicious chocolate cake and call it a perfect day.
