Full description
Embark on a half-day boat trip around the famous islands of Murano and Burano and discover a more local and authentic side to Venice. Enjoy free time to explore the scenic islands renowned for their glass blowing and lace-making traditions. Climb aboard your boat and sail towards Murano, known as the “Island of Glass". Get the chance to visit a glass factory and observe a local artist giving shape to a work of art in glass. Stroll the quiet streets of Murano at your own leisure and marvel at the beautiful 16th-century buildings that still stand tall to this day. Next, travel to Burano to see one of Venice’s most picturesque islands. Walk by the charming fishermen's houses painted with bright colors whose water reflection gives them a unique, dream-like shimmer. Browse through Burano’s rich collection of lace garments, which are still handmade by local women. After visiting both islands, cruise back to Venice and take in the breathtaking seascape surroundings.

    Very positive experience starting from the kindness and availability of Cecilia who promptly changed the time of my booking. Following the sympathy and simplicity of the guide, Carlotta, and the staff. Bella Murano, where we were able to witness two small glass creations inside a furnace, (even if the stop on this island was too long for our tastes) and Torcello but above all Burano, much more characteristic with its colors lively.

    The trip is worth the money. As the engine is quite loud it is really impossible to understand what is being said. Further it is very interesting to see these places. Small advice when in Murano, they will send you to the store to buy things and you will have to wait around half an hour to see how they create the glass object. Just skip the store and go straight to the center of an island unless you like to spend money on glass that would be mine advice.

    This is 100% worth doing! We had the BEST tour guide who spoke 4 languages. The glass blowing was amazing in Murano and the lace at the last stop was beautiful and so much to choose from. Awesome pizza on that island at the far end too We HIGHLY recommend doing this tour!
