Full description

Your first stop will be the island of Murano. Sometimes referred to as the Island of Glass, where you will visit one of its famous glass factories and see the glass being manufactured and blown. If you don’t want to do this, you'll be able to walk around the island in total autonomy for about 1 hour. The next stop will be the island of Burano, where you'll have lunch in the typical restaurant 'Al Raspo de Ua'. You can enjoy a 4-course menu: a first course of pasta with fish sauce or seafood pasticcio and, as a main, fried or grilled fish. You can also try a nice slide of homemade cake!

If you don't like fish or suffer from intolerances, vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free choices are available. The stop in Burano will last 2 hours in total. The excursion will continue with a visit to Torcello, the cradle of Venetian civilization, where you will spend around an hour. This island is inhabited only by a dozen people, you will see historical and artistic artworks, such as the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta, the ruins of the Baptistery of San Giovanni Evangelista, Attila’s Throne, and the fabled Devil's Bridge. This Murano, Burano, and Torcello tour allows you to discover the 3 most important Venice lagoon islands and enjoy local Venetian dishes in a typical osteria.

Nice trip with good guide on the boat. Stopovers are much too short, which makes sense if you visit 3 islands in 1 day. Interesting glassblowing demonstration on Murano. Beautifully colored houses on Burano, but the fish lunch was a bit simple Torcello we found the least interesting, not much to see. Next time we would opt for a visit of Murano and Burano, without lunch included.

It was a good experience, although we are not very fond of organized trips. The partner restaurant is also good. Only suggestion: at the appointment it would be nice to meet someone on the mainland who is waiting and welcoming you, we and others have independently searched for the pier and the boat

It was great to get off our feet for a bit and enjoy the boat ride and sights. We visited just one glass blowing shop and could shop there. No time to actually walk around the island. Murano was beautifully colorful. We did the lunch, but that took up all of our time to shop or see the lace making. But the lunch was fantastic.
