9. Venice: Boat Tour to Murano, Burano, Torcello & Fish Lunch
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.
