Meeting point

Meet at the small pier in front of the entrance of Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia in Fondamenta Zattere - a small boat will come to pick you up from the pier and will bring you to San Marco where you will change for a big panoramic terrace boat. After the excursion we will drop you here back at 17:45 but if you wish you can leav the boat already in San Marco at 17:30 to enjoy the rest of the evening there.

Tourist trap. First two islands geared to get us to spend money. Very little on third island.

Good luck, I went to the pier and waited and the directions were so vague that we waited at the wrong pier (like 100 feet from the correct pier). The pier we waited at specifically said “Murano, Burano, Torchello tours” so of curse we thought we were in the right place. Don’t waste your money. You can easily buy a tour when you arrive so you don’t get screwed.

Déçus par la traduction incompréhensible en français par la guide pendant la prestation du maître verrier tellement elle parlait mal français. Déçus de ne pas avoir eu un guide pendant le trajet en bateau de Murano à Burano qui a parlé très peu en français, mais énormément en italien , alors que le trajet était long . Cela nous a profondément agacés d autant que le premier guide de Venise à Murano faisait les traductions en 4 langues ainsi que le dernier de Burano à Venise , qui était un super guide souriant , qui maîtrisait parfaitement les 4 langues et qui en plus , étant venu avec nous à l église de Torcello a répondu à toutes nos questions et même dans le bateau , vraiment très disponible et professionnel .
