Full description

Enjoy a boat tour to discover the 3 most famous islands of Venice Lagoon: Murano, famous for glass artworks; Burano, with its colorful houses and unique handmade laces; and finally Torcello, the island from which Venice was born. Start your tour just a few steps far away from the Venice Train Station. Hop on the boat and head to Murano. Visit one of the many glass factories located on the island and attend a glass-making demonstration.

Walk to the lighthouse or visit the Basilica of Santi Maria and Donato, the Glass Museum, and Palazzo da Mula. Continue to Burano with its marvelous colored houses. Have some free time to stroll around the island, purchase fresh fish dishes, shop for local lace, or visit the Lace Museum. Finally, cruise to Torcello to uncover where Venetian civilization was born in the 7th century. Uncover the history of this small island with only 10 inhabitants.

Get the chance to see the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta, the ruins of the Baptistery of San Giovanni Evangelist, “Attila’s Throne,” and the Devil's Bridge.

This is a fabulous tour as it covers 3 distinctive picturesque islands. The guide was friendly and helpful. My friend and i were able to enjoy our time. We were fascinated by the Glass Blowing Demonstration and glass ornaments at Murano. The glass blowing craftman is surely a fantastic excellent expertist. While approaching Burano, I was thrilled to see yet another leaning tower in Italy. I was mesmersized by the colourful pretty houses in Burano. Not to forget there are a few splendid handcraft shops where you can get great sourvenir. The scenery, cafetaria and handcraft shops makes the trip unforgettable. As for Torcello, it is yet another signature island where you get to explore the history, ruin and beauty of its nature. Don't miss this opportunity to indulge yourself with different exprience.

This is a fantastic way to visit some of the most popular islands. Glass factory in Murano was just okay. Burano had so many photo opportunities and was really interesting. Torcello, was boring. However, I give the tour 5 stars because the boat ride was amazing and we learned so much along the way from Gian Luca.

I highly recommend this tour. It picks you up right next to the train station in Venice and returns you there as well. This is the only tour that I'vd found that does that. We spent 1.5 hrs in Murano, 2 hours in Burano, and 1 hr in Torcello. The glass blowing demonstration in Murano was very interesting to watch. The food in Murano is also very good. The guide was very friendly and patient. It is amazing that he can speak so many languages so well. The boat had plenty of room and not crowded at all. Choose this tour over the others!
