What to Expect
Climb aboard a comfortable motorboat for a half-day tour of the Venetian islands of Murano and Burano, and discover a more local and authentic side to Venice.

Depart from a pier close to St. Mark’s Square for a convenient crossing to Murano. Cross the lagoon to the “Island of Glass” as you hear fascinating stories about the city. On landing, go to one of the famous glass factories to see how the colorful glass ware is blown. Alternatively, stroll the quiet streets of the island at leisure.

Continue to Burano to discover one of the Venice Lagoon’s most picturesque islands. Your guide will point out the major sights, and explain the history of the island, before giving you about an hour of free time some free time to wander around the chocolate box houses. Marvel at the bright colors of the fishermen’s island, and go to a traditional lace store to see its most typical product.
