Full description

Escape the crowds in Venice and hop on a boat bound for the three most famous Venetian islands: Murano, Burano, and Torcello. Set sail from Punta Sabbioni and make a quick stop in Venice to pickup other tour participants before heading to Murano.

Enjoy the beautiful views of the lagoon and its scattered islands while learning about the history of Venice and the islands you will visit from your expert guide. Once in Murano, you'll have an hour to explore the island, world-famous for its long tradition of glass-making.

Choose to attend a 15-minute demonstration by a master glassmaker and pick up some local glass handicrafts or visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria and Donato and wander the town's quaint streets. Move on to Burano where you will have about two hours to take in views of the island's famous colored houses. Peruse the shops selling renowned Burano lace and visit workshops where it is common to see women intent on embroidering various lace products.

Enjoy the mesmerizing backdrop of vividly colored houses, flowered balconies, fishermen coming and going in their boats, and the leaning bell tower. Eat lunch wherever you choose or get tips from your local guide on the best spots for different budgets. Finally, make an hour-long stop at Torcello. Once the most populated island in the Republic of Venice and the trading center of the city, Torcello was gradually abandoned over the centuries and today has just over 10 inhabitants.

Enjoy the sleepy, bucolic setting of this ideal island getaway from the hustle and bustle of Venice. Check out the Cathedral of Santa Maria dell'Assunta, the Devil's Bridge, the Church of Santa Fosca, and the ancient stone chair called Attila's Throne.

Unfortunately the day we originally booked to go - transport in Jesolo was cancelled and we couldn’t get to the Port. The team were fantastic and responded within 24hrs to say we could use our vouchers on any other day. The actual trip was excellent - well organised - ran well to time and great value for money. Burano is particularly beautiful and felt very relaxing. Would recommend highly.

Everything worked out very well. Unfortunately, on the way to the second island (Burano), the tour guide was not understood at all due to engine noise (inside). The ticket printed out or via mobile phone is not sufficient. You have to queue again on site and you will get a paper ticket again.

Everything was well organized, a very nice tour guide on the ship explained all sorts of interesting things in umpteen languages. For me personally, there was only too little time in Burano, one would like to eat something comfortably and visit. But everything else was great! There was no problem with the printed ticket either.. great price!
