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.
