Full description
Visit 3 of Venice’s islands — Murano, Torcello, and Burano — by boat with a maximum group size of 40. Enjoy guided walking tours on each island with extra free time to explore each one.  Choose either St. Mark’s Basilica or Santa Lucia Train Station as your starting point. Then, hop onboard and enjoy your cruise to your first stop, Murano.  Exploring the Venetian Lagoon by boat will for sure provide you with some unforgettable views. Relax with some commentary as you cruise.  See up-close how Murano’s famous glassware is crafted with a glassblowing demonstration at an artisanal workshop. Then, enjoy a 20-minute guided tour of Murano, before spending some free time at the Basilica of Santa Maria and San Donato.  Cruise to the island of Torcello next, a shorter stop on your trip. Choose from either free time or a guided tour here.  If you're hungry, grab a bite at the "best spot in town", as recommended by your guide. Alternatively, follow your guide to the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta and head up the bell tower on your own for great views over the island of Burano. Next, head over to the island of Burano itself, a real crowd-pleaser. Make all your Instagram followers jealous with its striking multi-colored houses.  Try out a lace demonstration if you fancy it, or grab a bite to eat in one of the many delightful local restaurants. Be sure to taste the local delicacy — delicious "Bussolà" cookies — in your free time.  Then, hop back on the boat and be dropped at either St. Mark’s Basilica or Santa Lucia Train Station to conclude the trip.

    It was a wonderful experience at wonderful locations. The tour was well organized and the boat was comfortable. Our guide was an adorable tiny human being who did her very best to enunciate every word in English and largely succeeded, even though one could sense her Italian accent in every word and smile because of it (same-ah boat-ah, same-ah dock-ah).

    The tour is well thought out and the times are right, but unfortunately some users do not understand that punctuality in group outings is essential and allow themselves to delay. I believe that the companion should make this attitude weigh because in order not to call someone back, the correct and punctual people are dissatisfied and forced to wait for others' comforts.

    Perfect visit, very nice and very helpful guide! Well organized itinerary, maybe I would have spent more time in Burano because it is actually a destination that cannot be seen completely in an hour and a half but from Venice by public boat it can be reached in half an hour and therefore easily reachable even without a guide on other occasions. Thank you
