This is an excellent tour to have an overall introduction to Murano, Burano, and Torcello, without diving too deep into the details of each island. Perfect if you have never visited them and want to get an idea, less suitable if you want to gain in-depth knowledge about them. We were a small group, so the company booked a taxi, which was an absolute treat. Great first time to the Lagoon Islands, our favourite was Burano (we got covid masks with handmade lace! So stylish). Live demonstrations of glass blowing and lace making are included. The guide was approachable and knowledgeable, keeping us on time without making us feel rushed.
Best way to do the three islands in one go. Murano was really interesting, I would have liked to have more time to explore the island. Burano is beautiful with it's buildings and all the handicrafts - perfect amount of time there! Torcello is cute, very tiny. If I had to do it again though I'd probably go for more time on Murano and no Torcello. Anyway: This trip is definitely worth going!!!
Gabrielle was very engaging and provided easy, helpful and effective cooking class. He is a gifted cooking teacher. Enjoyed his class a lot!
It was enjoyable. You get to learn a bit abt the history of mask making. The technique was fun. The instructor was kind and patient.
A wonderful day of culture and Burano was beautiful could have stopped there longer.
