Full description
Embark on a half-day boat trip around the famous islands of Murano and Burano and discover a more local and authentic side to Venice. Enjoy free time to explore the scenic islands renowned for their glass blowing and lace-making traditions. Climb aboard your boat and sail towards Murano, known as the “Island of Glass". Get the chance to visit a glass factory and observe a local artist giving shape to a work of art in glass. Stroll the quiet streets of Murano at your own leisure and marvel at the beautiful 16th-century buildings that still stand tall to this day. Next, travel to Burano to see one of Venice’s most picturesque islands. Walk by the charming fishermen's houses painted with bright colors whose water reflection gives them a unique, dream-like shimmer. Browse through Burano’s rich collection of lace garments, which are still handmade by local women. After visiting both islands, cruise back to Venice and take in the breathtaking seascape surroundings.
