Thank you so much for the congratulations; it was a lovely wedding only possible in Italy. We did use the song of the Seguso Expereince for the groom's entrance, and it was the perfect fit. We're very happy that it could be part of the wedding and now part of our lives - along with the beautiful piece of Seguso art that arrived a few days ago! We are so glad that we stopped in to your showroom while in Venice, and we can't wait until we have the chance to visit again. Best regards,
In una calda serata di luglio ho avuto modo di vivere, con mio marito e il mio piccolo di 5 anni, un viaggio incantato nella nostra migliore tradizione artigianale. Per me, che per lavoro mi occupo di arredamento e design, è stata un’occasione straordinaria per conoscere dal vivo il pregio della produzione degli splendidi manufatti Seguso. La visita alla fabbrica, guidata proprio dai fratelli Seguso, consente di assistere alla creazione dei prodotti e di conoscere la storia della loro famiglia che, con passione e lungimiranza, ha custodito e tramandato nei secoli questa straordinaria capacità manifatturiera. Bevendo un drink, davanti all'incanto del mare lagunare, mi sono sentita orogliosa di appartenere ad un paese che, ancora, è in grado di creare tanta bellezza. Anche mio marito e mio figlio sono tornati a casa arricchiti da questa esperienza davvero unica. Il mio piccolo, con indosso il caschetto bianco di sicurezza, si guardava intorno con gli occhioni spalancati e forse, per una sera, si è sentito un pò "maestro vetraio". Ringrazio ancora la famiglia Seguso per l’impeccabile organizzazione e per la squisita cortesia con cui ci hanno accolto e fatto sentire a "casa". Da consigliare, assolutamente, per conoscere e apprezzare la Venezia più autentica.
Glass artists in the Seguso furnace room took the time to show us how they rolled molten glass in gold leaf, blew it and shaped it into a chandelier part. They were incredibly welcoming and generous with their time! My husband and I enjoyed a nearly two hour private tour at Seguso, learning the 700 year history of the company, seeing remarkable art glass, even meeting the charming Seguso son who is director of the place! Our guide could not have been more gracious, answering my many questions. There was no pressure to buy. And when I did pick a treasure to bring home, they did all the paperwork to get my tax refund. A memorable day! Arranged when we visited the Seguso store in Murano.
We loved our tour of the Seguso Factory. It was private and we had the exclusive attention of our tour representative. We were taken through the rich history of the Seguso family and their art of glass making. Everyone we met was very kind and inclusive. We were able to go into the furnace and witness the master glass blowers working first hand at their art. We highly recommend this tour! It was one of the best experiences we had in Venice!
Out of ten days spent vacationing throughout northern Italy (Rome, Florence, Milan, and Venice) our morning spent at the Seguso Experience was one of the highlights. A water taxi picked us up in front of our hotel and took us on a wonderful ride directly to their front door. We were greeted warmly and led on a wonderful private tour of the furnace that included the family history, an amazing demonstration of their glass-making skill (including a chance for us to try as well), and a leisurely walk through the showroom. Our visit was during the very hot month of August when many of the locals are on vacation themselves, but they still accommodated our request for a tour. It may be difficult to capture hundreds of years of their legacy on Murano, but they do an exceptional job of it. If you have a chance to visit Murano, skip the touristy, high-pressure shops elsewhere and spend some time watching the masters at work.
The Seguso Experience was the highlight of our time in Venice. I have always wanted to visit a Murano glassmaker and am so very happy that we went to the best-Seguso. The factory tour itself was amazing and extremely eye-opening, as you can actually see the beautiful art pieces being made. However, what made this experience incomparable and truly unforgettable is the warmth and hospitality of the Seguso family. I couldn't believe that the CEO himself-a 23rd generation Seguso-took so much time with us to share the family story, their passion and the responsibility they feel to carry on the tradition in a sustainable way. His passion and love for his craft were contagious! The entire staff went so far above and beyond to make the experience unforgettable for us. We left truly feeling like part of the family, which is an incredible and very rare feeling. I can't recommend this enough!
Extremely welcoming and professional, the Seguso Experience is absolutely something you cannot miss if you travel to Venice. We scheduled the tours in the factory at the Seguso store in Murano. Since the first minutes spent at the factory you can feel and see all the good things that made them so unique for over 600 years! The glass history museum was very informative and well presented; but the best part was in the factory itself, where two glass masters were working and showed us about the amazing art form. It was interactive and my daughter had the opportunity to blow and create few glass balloons of her own! The glass artifacts exhibited in the factory reflected the passion of this family. An unique and priceless experience!!
We heard about the Seguso family on TV and we wanted to see if we could get a tour while visiting Venice and Murano from Los Angeles, CA. My wife and I were impressed with the welcome we received in the store in Murano and was immediately scheduled for a tour of their factory. Once did our 10-15 minute walk to the factory, Lucia was very welcoming and expressed all the good things about Seguso and what made them so unique for 600 years. They offered us drinks when we got in and went out of their way to make us comfortable throughout the very informative tour. They even made sure there were a couple of artists working (blowing/shaping glass) even though it was the time of the year when most take off for vacation. They exceeded all our expectations allowing us to blow our own glass and explaining every detail. There was no pressure to buy any of their products and even gave us a glass seal of Seguso at the end. With this exceptional hospitality (for just two people), we will definitely consider buying their products in the future.
Zufällig konnten wir am Tag des Besuches von Murano ein appointment bei der Firma Seguso bekommen mit Darstellung der Glasbläserei in Murano im allgemeinen und im speziellen der Firma Seguso. Bei einer erstklassigen Führung wurde uns die Geschichte des seit 23 Generationen (200 Jahre vor Kolumbus !) existierenden Unternehmens nahegebracht mit Exponaten, Besuch der Werkstatt, Showroom. Die Freundlichkeit und der Wunsch, die Firmenphilosophie nahezubringen waren in jeder Hinsicht positiv beeindruckend, der Besuch war eines der wirklichen Highlights unseres einwöchigen Aufenthaltes in Venedig. Auch auf diesem Wege nochmals herzlichen Dank für unvergessliche Impressionen. Selbst die 13- und 15- jährigen pubertierenden Jungs waren der Aussagekraft der Produkte und der Darstellung der Firmentradition erlegen.
We visited Seguso on the last day of our trip to Venice and we would highly recommend anyone in Murano to visit it. The people are so friendly, kind, passionate and knowledgeable and our tour guide was able to answer any questions we had. We were taught about the history of the Seguso family too. We visited in August when we were told that the workshop is usually closed (due to the hot summer), however it was open to us for demonstration purposes. It was amazing to watch the glass masters working and learn more about the art form. The experience was slightly pricey but definitely worth a visit! The whole family really enjoyed it.
L'experience di Seguso è un momento magico. La capacità dei maestri veneziani di saper raccontare la storia e il fascino del vetro è un'arte che difficilmente può essere emulata o trovata altrove. Il prestigio del marchio viene decantato e totalmente giustificato non appena ci si trova all'interno della fornace e si assiste alla creazione di meraviglie uniche nel proprio genere. Ciò che rende Seguso la vetreria d'eccellenza nella cornice dell'isola di Murano è l'amore che la famiglia Seguso ha trasmesso non sono all'interno del proprio nucleo, ma a tutti i maestri e i partecipanti a quest'incredibile esperienza. Lo spettatore si sente complice ed in parte artefice dell'energia sprigionata da questa declinazione dell'arte e si fonde con il fuoco stesso per dar vita ad una stupefacente e fragile idea di vetro. Un fascino che solo Venezia può regalare al mondo.
La visita guidata – strettamente su prenotazione – alla fornace Seguso, storica famiglia di vetrai di Murano, risalente al 1397, è stata una delle esperienza più belle ed uniche che abbiamo vissuto a Murano e Venezia! La prima cosa che va sottolineata è l’accoglienza che ci è stata riservata: mia moglie ed io siamo stati accolti da GianAndrea Seguso ed è stato lui a farci da guida! La visita è iniziata con una accurata ed affascinante racconto della storia del vetro, dell’arte del vetro di Murano e della famiglia Seguso. In seguito, abbiamo prima assistito all’abile creazione di uno splendido vaso, da parte di un maestro vetraio, e poi, al termine di tale dimostrazione, abbiamo avuto anche modo di soffiare il vetro: una esperienza indimenticabile! La visita si è poi conclusa percorrendo il loro showroom con moltissime stupende opere Seguso, dove, volendo, uno può anche effettuare degli acquisti. Se siete a Venezia e, soprattutto, se siete a Murano, non potete non vivere questa esperienza autentica, unica ed indimenticabile!
My friends and I visited the Seguso Glass Factory on Morano island during our trip to Venice. The experience of learning about Venetian glass was truly outstanding! We had a private tour of the factory with Lucia who was kind enough to show us around. We met two of the experts working in the factory and were totally blown away by the skill and the precision with which they work. They even let us blow and create a few glass balloons of our own! The glass artifacts exhibited in the factory reflected the true belief and passion of the proprietors. An experience to cherish no doubt!
It was truly and incredible experience and Team Segvso has taken the art of glass making to a different level. I would highly recommend this to everyone visiting Venice.
It was truly breathtaking watching the glass masters at work and walking around the Seguso site. The people at Seguso have such a passion for their work and it really came through in the way they presented their works and facilities, notwithstanding how friendly and accommodating they were, even when we booked on short notice. Learning about Venetian glass gives one an appreciation for the skill involved and it has such a rich history that any visit to Venice would be incomplete without a visit!
To enjoy this experience you need to pre book. This is an educational, hands on tour that lasts about one and a half hours and is located a short walk from the Museo water bus stop. Caterina was a guide and she was excellent. Both my wife and I were moved by the passion of the tour and the finish products will grace any home. The Four Seasons hotels, Elton John and Lady Diana are just a few of their clients. If you are a collector, enthusiast or just want to be educated then we would recommend this tour.
The Seguso experience è l'occasione perfetta per immergersi nelle atmosfere magiche e fiabesche della lavorazione del vetro, oltre che un tuffo nella storia della famiglia Seguso, che rappresenta da secoli l'eccellenza dell'arte vetraria e della creatività... Una famiglia che apre la propria 'casa' magnificamente agli ospiti e li accompagna lungo un bellissimo percorso alla scoperta dei segreti del vetro, tra arte, creatività e finissimo artigianato
We would like to thank the company for giving us such a wonderful experience during the factory visit. Though it was a short trip due to our packed itinenary, we were glad we make it to visit the factory. We ordered some items & received our Murano glass order plus a nice complimentary bowl which was shipped to us promptly. Thank you Seguso for such generosity & making our trip a memorable one.
