Murano and the visit of the glass factory was not so impressive for us, but Burano pleased us better, here the stay could have been longer!

Great trip. Really worth seeing.

The islands are great. Time's a little short, though. Half an hour more for a side trip to the street cafe would be great.

Beautiful boat tour with a lot of information during the trip. The excursions on the islands are relatively short, but easy to manage. On Murano the show in the glassblower's studio is very interesting if you have never seen a glassblower before

Your experience

Description

Take part in a very special boat trip to the Venetian lagoon. Here you can enjoy the unique scenery and learn about typical craft traditions and the special history of the islands.

The tour starts at St. Mark's Square and leads through the lagoon towards Lido and along the north coast back to the city.

The first stop will take you to Murano. This island is internationally known for its glassblowing craft. You will gain an insight into the everyday life of the island's glass manufacturers.

The excursion then continues on to the small island of Burano. With a tour guide you discover the highlights and the history of the island. Here you have free time to discover the small island in a very relaxed way. The contrasting facades of the fishermen's cottages will inspire you.

Handicrafts also play an important role on this island. Embroideries and lace are produced.

Before going to the next island you must try the cake that is so typical of Burano.

The last stop is Torcello, the oldest island of the lagoon. Here you have the opportunity to visit the Byzantine cathedral, whose beautiful mosaics show the "Last Judgement".
