    Full description
    Embark on a half-day guided boat trip around the famous islands of Murano, Burano, and Torcello. Discover a more local and authentic side to Venice and explore the scenic islands renowned for their glass blowing, lace-making traditions, and rich history. Meet your guide, 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. Take a short stroll through the quiet streets of Murano 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. Continue towards the tiny island of Torcello where Venetian civilization was born in the 7th century. See Torcello’s central square, the Church of Santa Fosca, and Attila's Throne, an ancient stone chair where chief magistrates were inaugurated. Experience an atmosphere that takes you back in time to where life in Venice began. After visiting all three islands, cruise back to Venice and take in the breathtaking seascape surroundings.
