  • See the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, a 16th-century Benedictine church, the public gardens, the tip of Sant'Elena and the famous beach resort - Lido, and more!
  • 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.

Good, comprehensive tour for the price. Good demonstration of glass blowing. Shop more expensive than shops on Venice. Tour guide not very informative. Could’ve spent more time on Torcello & a little less on Burano. Lovely way to spend the afternoon. Easy to book online.

Nice to be at three nice islands..
Murano; short for just a glass factory visit...
Torcello: nice walk...
Burano: nice colors
Very kind guide...
Guy at the yellow desk could be more customer oriented and kind...

Le temps sur l'ile de Murano est trop courte.sinon c'était une chouette balade.

We dachten dat we Murano echt zouden kunnen bekijken, maar het was alleen een drop-off bij een fabriek waar je een korte presentatie over glasblazen kreeg en vervolgens in een fuik werd gegooid om dingen te kopen in de shop, om daarna weer op de boot geloodst te worden. Op Torcello is eigenlijk niets te doen; er staat een kathedraal maar daar moet je ook nog entree voor betalen. Burano is mooi om even overheen te wandelen. Het was op zich een prima afwisseling na een aantal dagen Venetië, maar met de hop-on-hop-off kun je ook naar Murano en zelf over het eiland wandelen, wat meer de moeite waard is.

Couleurs de Burano exceptionnelles
Murano, juste une visite de fabrication de verrerie
Torcello, simple mais typique
Au total, balade plutôt sympathique

È stata una gita stupenda, posso dire anche perfetta, guida al top l’unica pecca che se non ci fossimo presentati prima saremmo rimasti a piedi perché devono emettere una sorta di scontrino, ma per il resto è davvero super!

Il tour è organizzato molto bene, peccato per i tempi relativamente stretti a murano

Très bonne visite ! Le seul regret est d’avoir visiter en dernier l’île de Burano alors qu’il faisait nuit. La visite aurait dû commencer par cette île qui est magnifique de jour avec toutes ses couleurs vives.
