Move on to your next activity. Your driver will then take you to Biot a fortified medieval town known as the 'City of Arts and Crafts', an incredible hilltop village where craftsmen have been producing beautiful ceramics since Antiquity and later evolved to glass making specialized in jars and large storage containers for food and wine exported since the 16th century throughout the Mediterranean, America and India! Examples of which, including antique pieces and more modern bubble-blown glass, are displayed in the local history and ceramics museum. The characteristics of Biot style glass is that there are small bubbles formed inside the glass which are created by sprinkling bicarbonate, creating a unique local style!  Enjoy a glassblowing workshop experience in a little bubble-blown glass workshop.
