Description

Why hide out in the City of Masks when you can sail away on the lagoon? Take a special sightseeing excursion from Venice and explore the islands of Murano and Burano. Learn the history from your guide, watch the glass-making and lace-making, and try some Venetian snacks.

Head to the small island of Murano with your bilingual guide, where you can watch the art of glass-making in action. Visit the factory, feel the heat of the furnace, and even buy some colorful glass to take home.

On Burano, watch the lace-makers and learn why Burano lace was once so valuable it factored into women's dowries. If you have time, why not visit the Museo del Merletto (for a small fee), or walk among the brightly-colored fishermen's houses.

At the Island's Main Square, explore San Martino's Church, home to The Crucifixion by Tiepolo, and the famous leaning tower.

Stop for lunch in the restaurant of your choice. And, for something sweet afterward, don't miss the chance to try the local sweet known as bussolà, and the special esse biscuits.

It's a tasty, cruisy way to see more of Venice.

Great experience. Murano is a good place to see the glass factory. That's all. Burano is
a beautiful place. It is a must to visit. The only inconvenience was the meeting point. We stopped at the gps point but the motoscafi was 200 meters away. We had to ask for help.

Great excursion to experience. Murano contained an interesting demonstration in a glass factory. Advise: do not waste too much time in the store right after the show, explore the island for there is few time to explore.
Burano was magical, definitely the best island to visit, beautiful colors and enough free time to explore.
