Stop at Murano and see a demonstration by a glass-blowing master. The tradition of glassblowing has been passed down generations of Murano residents. Continue to Torcello and see the central square, the Church of Santa Fosca, Ponte del Diavolo and other interesting sites. The last visit will be to Burano.

I was a nice experience and we saw a lot of interesting things.The only problem was that the program was a bit tight and we didn't have a lot of time in any of the islands to really enjoy them or even sit for a quick coffee. We were on the run the whole times. On top of that they combined 3 groups in one so the boat was a bit crowded and we didn't have a proper place to sit between the island hopping. (We sut on the stairs)

Boat ride was not shaky that i would commend Its worth visiting and the tour price was reasonable love the picturesque church at torcello which hyped the italian vibes. Murano was nice too with all the glass shops and would definitely recommend to buy here souvenir glass bracelets! And ofcourse burano the instagrammable area with all the colorful houses

Glass display was great. We enjoyed torcello too. It was quiet but charming. Burano by far the best. We were delivered in a chaotic way. Started at 2pm then had to change boats and joined us with a massive group. Didn't get going til 2.45. When stopping at burano they said they were going and someone would be back for us at 6. This was a little worrying. They turned up just to take us back and it felt like no connection with new people. Didn't get back til 7 so longer than expected. Great trip for price but ours felt chaotic.
