Full description
Visit the most beautiful islands in the Venetian Lagoon on this 4 or 6-hour afternoon tour. Stop at the island of Murano, home to world-renowned glassblowers, Burano, known for its lace production and the ancient settlement of Torcello. Spend around 45 minutes on 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, where you will spend around 45 minutes. See the central square, the Church of Santa Fosca, Ponte del Diavolo and other interesting sites. The last visit will be to Burano. The island is world-known for its hand-made lace but also for its small, brightly painted houses that are popular with artists.

    Burano & Murano were very beautiful. The stay at Murano could have been a little bit longer (was ~45min). Torcello was ok but for the church and museum you require a combi ticket nobody tells you when you actually buy the tickets. The price for the church only was too expensive compared to other churches / activities (5€ each). The guide was very nice and helpful. Overall a great trip, thanks.

    it was really nice we started exactly on time and first stop was Murano where we saw glass factory and some live demonstration then we headed to torcello and saw the smallest populated island with only 11 houses left and we headed to burano which was a colorful island and famous for laces. it was fun and really found it interesting and good for photography. the guide was also awesome

    It was a really nice tour and the guide was great super nice .. but the only problem was they had too many guests so they left us waiting for another 30 min even though we had bought the tickets online so then the time on the islands was reduced and i didnt appreciate that but overall it was a great expirience and the islands are so worth visiting.
