I highly recommend this boat ride because we come to Venice every year but we only remained on the main island. This ride helped me discover the other islands of Venice like, Murano & Burano. The boat was not crowded unlike the vaporetto and since its an open boat we got to feel and see the beauty Venice has to offer

absolute must for Venice travelers. However, the 24-hour pass is enough for a relaxing day on Murano & Burano. But you should have the last trip from St. Lucia back to San Marco on the screen. The ships were always very clean and the staff friendly and helpful.

Not crowded unlike other boats. Times are ok too! The only drawback in the app is unfortunately that the carrier is not shown, but an employee on site was able to assure us that we are correct.

Highly recommended. You can choose to start and stay at your convenience. No guide needed in Murano and Burano in my opinion.

Glad we chose this! Lovely clean open boat with open sides with good views and photo opportunities. Closed area too.
