Full description

Sail across the emerald waters of the Venice lagoon on this full day trip to the islands of Burano, Murano and Torcello. Choose from an option with a shuttle transfer from S. Lucia Train Station to the departure point in San Marco or pick a tour option that meets in San Marco. 

Hop aboard a comfortable water taxi in the morning and glide through the Lagoon of Venice. Admire views from the boat's panoramic terrace and listen to commentary from your guide. 

Upon arrival at your first stop, Murano, find out why the island is renowned for its glassworks with a visit to a local glass factory. Watch a skilled artisan during a glass processing demonstration. Afterward, have approximately an hour on the island for shopping in one of the many glass shops.

Next, head for Burano, which is known for its lacework and brightly colored houses. Follow your guide to the heart of the town and have 2 hours of free time to purchase a nice lunch, typical Venetian aperitifs, or get an ice cream at one of the many cafes. 

Venture from Burano to Torcello, the first center of civilization in the estuary. Spend an hour of free time where you can go to see the Venetian-Byzantine mosaics at the Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta. Return to San Marco in the early evening.

so this was the first time i booked a tour from getyourguide and i was really unsure of what would happen, considering the reviews i read. however, it was an amazing experience. meeting point was not that difficult to locate and all the people were already gathered on the place. our tour guide was AMAZING and he explained everything in detail. enough time was given on each island to explore and have fun. it is definitely worth it and would recommend.

The tour overall was a nice one with the glass blowing demonstration on the first island, although, the time spent on the 2nd island and the 3rd, Torcello, was a bit too much. Most of us were waiting to come back on the boat before the time. The first two islands, Murano and Burano, but dunno which one was first, are good, but the one that is not of the glass blowing, was just for tourism, nothing really local and really fast to see

Very nice trip to the three main island of the laguna. Being on a small boat, the feeling was to be in a nice family. In particular the guide talking to the microphone in several language was really nice. On the way to Torcello and back, we were moved to a bigger boat, less nice atmosphere but still professional. It would be worth to spend some more time in Torcello, stealing some time to Burano.
