Description

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 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.

What a great experience! My only suggestion would be to make the time at each stop a little longer.

Excellent value for money. Ample time on each island. Burano was my favourite.

I enjoyed the tour but I felt that some more information given on the history of each island would have made it better. Also, I think it would help to see the island of Murano.

Good tour if you only have an afternoon - tour guide impressively fluent in 4 languages Italian English French and Spanish. Murano glass blowing demo really excellent. Torcello interesting, Burano divine. The only thing is only having 30 - 45 minutes at each place, which is great for a quick no nonsense tour, but for more depth and more exploration of each place you may want to go by ferries and take your time.
