Full description

Discover the most charming and famous islands of the Venetian Lagoon on this full-day excursion. Marvel at the beautiful surroundings of Venice and learn more about Venetian life and traditions.

Start your journey in a comfortable motorboat leaving from the St. Mark's area, and move toward your first stop, the island of Murano. Stay for approximately 1.5 hours on the island and take your time to explore it on your own.

Visit a glass factory and learn how glass masters create their masterpieces with a glass-blowing demonstration. Don't miss the massive Basilica of Santi Maria e Donato, one of the oldest Churches in the Venetian lagoon originally built in the 7th Century.

Return to the motorboat and head to Burano Island. Immerse yourself in its quaint and colorful houses for around 1.5 hours. According to a local legend, Burano gets its rainbow appearance from the fishermen who painted their houses in bright colors to find their way home when returning from sea.

The island is also known internationally for its rare artisan lace. Hop back on the motorboat, and ride to the last stop, Torcello, the first settlement in the Venetian Lagoon. During your 1-hour unguided stop, be sure to visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, founded in 639.

Take a selfie with Attila's Throne in the background, an ancient stone chair where chief magistrates were inaugurated, or go up the Bell Tower and take a beautiful picture of the surrounding area. At the end of the tour, ride back to the point of departure.

Alexandria was our guide and a very helpful knowledgeable lady was she. It was an interesting talk on the history of the gondola and the icing on the cake was a magnificent 30 minute relaxing ride in the gondola. We enjoyed every minute and it was a fantastic start to our holiday. So beautiful, calm and peaceful. Highly recommend, very reasonable priced.

The yellow booth was easy to find and check in for the tour. There were a lot of people on the same your so make sure you pay attention to the leaving times for the boat for all three stops. Torcello the last stop of the day was okay but you could have left this one out so that it was not such a long day . Overall good value for money and would recommend
