Full description
Embark on a half-day boat trip around the famous islands of Murano, Burano, and Torcello. Discover a more local and authentic side to Venice and explore the scenic islands renowned for their glass blowing, lace-making traditions, and rich history. Climb aboard your boat and sail towards Murano, known as the “Island of Glass". Walk by glass factories where local artists create works of art in glass. Take a short stroll through the quiet streets of Murano 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. Continue towards the tiny island of Torcello where Venetian civilization was born in the 7th century. See Torcello’s central square, the Church of Santa Fosca, and Attila's Throne, an ancient stone chair where chief magistrates were inaugurated. Experience an atmosphere that takes you back in time to where life in Venice began. After visiting all three islands, cruise back to Venice and take in the breathtaking seascape surroundings.

      Only few minutes to Murano island, which is a beautiful place. Most of thr time for demonstration of Murano glass and the shop for buying Murano products. Murano stop is a trap for making money the shop owner and the boat company... Secondly, Burano is absolutely magnificent! Has to be more time to explore and rest (time for coffee for example).

      It was a pretty nice and interesting trip through the lagoon of Venice. But if you want to discover the islands by yourself without time pressure and a guide, we recommend a 24h ferry ticket (20€). It’s valid for all the ferry lines, including the islands around Venice and the Canal Grande.

      It was a really nice tour and the guide was great super nice .. but the only problem was they had too many guests so they left us waiting for another 30 min even though we had bought the tickets online so then the time on the islands was reduced and i didnt appreciate that but overall it was a great expirience and the islands are so worth visiting.
