Magical Murano (Days 1-2.5)

Travel Tuesdays now considering we still have yet to post a review about TV Shows from the schedule? Magical Murano because we had the pleasure of seeing live the process of glass blowing AND a Double Rainbow on our last day on the island!

Venice and Murano was our first stop after an overnight flight at 9PM from Boston with a connection in Munich. We we thoroughly enjoyed all the modern amenities of the modern Lufthansa Airline. I watched 2.5 movies (Moonlight, Trolls and half of Fantastic Beasts before falling asleep.) A woman next to us in the aisle seat also kept giving us her extra food so I had plenty of snacks. The meal was edible, but nothing amazing however we had as much wine and alcohol as we wanted. (Probably the standard for international flights!) The connecting flight with Air Dolomiti was much less impressive, since everything looked like it was from the 70s. It was only 1 hour but I slept the entire time!

Luckily for us just as we landed there was someone from Gate 1 ready to direct us and there was a Water Taxi ready for us! We encountered another couple too from New England area. The taxi driver dropped us off right in front of our beautiful hotel LaGare on the charming island of Murano! We were a bit early so our room wasn’t quite ready but they said it’d be ready within 30-45 minutes. We were both so tired from our red-eye flights so we stopped by the caffé next door for some caffeine and a rare find of NO COVER CHARGE. Dana ordered a hot drink and I had an iced drink. They came with complimentary biscuits/cookies for us to dip. The place was so beautifully decorated with colorful artisanal glass all along the walls. Feel free to check out my Yelp or Trip Advisor review for more details about the hotel itself coordinated by Gate 1. Originally the travel documents said we’d stay within Venice, which would have been nice to explore however I did not mind the quiet charm of Murano.
