Full Description

Explore the uniqueness of each of the islands. The traditional glassblowing of Murano! The amazing colours of Burano's houses! The history and art of Torcello! From the boat you can take some breath-taking picture of the Lagoon and its several islands!

Enjoy the Venice Islands Tour: a day trip to the northern lagoon to see Murano, Burano, and Torcello, an hours-long excursion to see the islands in all their beauty. Starting from St. Mark's Square, comfortably traverse the lagoon sitting on a panoramic boat with a specialized guide explaining the history and culture of the islands. The first stop is Murano, known worldwide for its glass manufacturing industry. Make a stop to visit a glass factory where you will see a glassblowing demonstration by a local artist creating a unique glass object in front of you, and you will have time to enjoy the pretty island. The second stop is on the picturesque island of Burano, famous not only for its lace-making but also for its brightly painted fishermen's houses. Lose yourself in the colorful streets and savor the delicious local sweets "Bussolai." The last but not least stop is the quiet and sparsely populated island of Torcello, the first center of civilization in the estuary. On this island you can admire the oldest churches in the lagoon and discover how Venice was born! Return from the islands by crossing the lagoon and admiring the fascinating St. Mark's Basin from the boat. Enjoy the scenic boat ride and take wonderful photos of Venice and its lagoon.
