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.

Very well organized, strengths: punctuality and courtesy, Our guide Andrea was exhaustive in his explanations. I would anticipate the departure and postpone the return to enjoy at least an additional hour of the tour since the stay in Burano and Torcello was too short. I recommend the experience, the islands deserve to be visited !!

Very interesting, to know the surroundings of the Venice lagoon. You can also go by vaporetto. But I have to say that we went on a sunny Sunday, and the queue to catch the vaporetto was about a kilometer long. With this tour you take your boat at the time indicated on each island and you forget about queues. Maybe there are days with less crowds and the vaporetto works well. But it is worth keeping in mind depending on the day

Very nice trip! I recommend 100%. Very well organized and friendly staff. Schedules are respected and everything is clearly explained! A little short in Murano (about 1 hour), 2 hours in Burano which gives you time to visit and eat! Regarding Torcello, we arrived at several boats at the same time, which spoiled the visit a bit (too many people). Moreover everything on the island is paying (visits, museums, toilets at 1€50…)
