  • Witness the glassmakers at work on Murano, and the lacemakers on Burano - skills that have been honed around Venice since the 10th century

History, art and culture come together on this cool cruise through the Venetian Lagoon with a fun Italian tour guide. Visit the islands of Murano, Burano, and Torcello, see the glassmakers at work, shop for lace and pose by the colorful fishermen's houses. A great way to see a different side to Venice!

Over the gondolas and Venetian mask stores? Hop aboard a motorboat and get off the tourist trail with a triple island experience.

See Murano, Burano, and Torcello in one day and learn the amazing history behind the northern part of the Venetian Lagoon!

Murano is famous around the world for its glassmaking, a skill that its citizens have been honing since the 10th century. On the way, sail past landmarks like the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, a 16th-century Benedictine church, the public gardens, and the famous beach resort - Lido.

See the lacemakers in Burano, plus brightly painted buildings and flowerpots. It's a photographer's paradise! Then explore the sparsely populated island of Torcello and check out the impressive mosaics in the Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta.

After all this, you'll be transported back to Venice, more than likely laden with lace and handblown glass.

The boat tour to the three islands was very nice and well organized. It would have been nice to have some extra time on each island though. 40 minutes goes by very quickly. We had to change our reservation time after we booked the tour but customer service was wonderful and very accommodating.

fun little day trip. I wish we spent more time on each of the islands because we felt a little rushed. It was nice to explore a little and see the ancient church, glass blowing, and charming island towns. Would recommend overall.

A great way to check out the 3 islands but I felt rushed, especially at Murano. There you get to see a hot glass demo right off the dock (which was excellent) but left me wondering about the rest of the island. What's the rest of it like?

The trip was great and the guide could speak in 5 languages (English, Italian, German, French and Spanish). The stops at each island are very quick (30-40 minutes). So if you are with some elderly, you might think twice before going to far from the boat.
We got out at the last stop in Burano and enjoyed a longer trip around the island and take a regular water taxi tô Venice.
One more point, the guy on the tickets desk was very rude and waited until the last minute to tell us where the boat was going to arrive, so everyone had to run.

Leave out Torcello and give more time on Murano
