Description

Cruise across the waters of the Venetian Lagoon to visit 3 famous islands, each with its own unique ambiance and time-honoured traditions. Hop off to explore colourful Burano, roam the streets of quaint Torcello, and watch the famous glass-blowing masters of Murano at work.

Step on board a public boat near illustrious St. Mark's Square or behind the Santa Lucia train station and skim across the water towards the glass-making haven of Murano, where the skills and techniques for blowing colourful Murano glass have been honed for centuries. Step off and follow a guide to a glass-making store and showroom for a brief demonstration, and then spend the rest of your time exploring on your own before jumping back on the boat.

Your next stop is at the neighbouring island of Burano, best known for its enchanting fishermen's houses in striking, bold colours. Start your visit here with a visit to a lace-making store—the island is known for its delicate, handmade designs—before roaming about to snap photos of the canals that criss-cross the island or grabbing a coffee in a quiet cafe.

Your final stop is the island of Torcello, recognised as the very first settlement in the Venetian Lagoon. It’s home to ancient Byzantine churches and pretty pathways, perfect for a stroll and a glimpse into the past before you return to the boat for the final cruise back to Venice.

Purchased online for sunday morning. Went to check in point at railway station 15 mins before as instructed. We were told to wait for a further hour. When we git on the boat to muranno and were told to return at 1450 we returned at exactly 1450 to see the boat had already left! Had to get our own way back using public transport app in italian- overall rubbish experience . My advice- use public trandport and purchase ticket on mainland venice

4/5 18 Oct 2019

Good short tour of the Venetian Islands. It would be better if we have more time to explore the food in Burano.
