    What to Expect
    Meet your private guide in San Marco Square in time for a 9.30am departure and head to the pier to board your private boat. Set sail around the UNESCO-listed Venice Lagoon and admire the views as you glide past San Giorgio island, Certosa island, and Sant Erasmo island.

    Arrive at Murano Island and jump off for a walking tour of the tranquil island, pausing to admire the 12th-century Church of Santi Maria e Donato. Then, discover the island’s claim to fame – Murano glass – as you visit a glass factory, enjoy a traditional glass-blowing demonstration, and perhaps purchase some exquisite hand-made souvenirs.

    Back on the boat, it’s a short cruise to Burano Island, where the multi-colored houses and picturesque fishing port make for some striking photo opportunities. After taking in the scenery, pay a visit to a lace factory to discover the island’s rich lace-making heritage.

    After returning to the mainland, your tour ends back in San Marco Square.

    Murano is a beautiful little village. The glass blowing was great to see and the show room was huge. Would highly recommend getting the esse cookies! Best I've had in all of Italy. The guide and boat driver were nice and friendly.

    Excellent host and demonstration. Discounts were offered in sales room, following the glass blowing. Prices for some items were better in Murano jewelry stores.

    Kind of rushed, visited one glass making factory and sales showroom without any opportunity to shop at others. The glass pieces were average not special we saw others in the windows of shops that were more creative
