Stop At: Murano, Burano & Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour, Venice Italy

Your trip begins at a convenient spot in central Venice, where you’ll meet your local, expert guide and board a private water taxi for the island of Murano. On your way, drink in gorgeous views of the Venetian lagoon while you sip on complimentary prosecco and learn about the history of the island from your guide.

After a short trip, you’ll arrive to Murano’s most famous glass factory to see a live demonstration from one of its master artisans. Your guide will use this time to teach you about the traditions behind this incredible skill and the secrecy that keeps the industry alive. Next, head to the factory’s private Art Gallery to view some of the most incredible glass artwork the island has to offer.

Then it’s back on your boat to travel to the tiny island of Torcello. This picturesque island is aptly called “the garden of Venice”. Here, you’ll have free time to soak up its gorgeous atmosphere or climb the local bell tower for views of the lagoon.

The last stop of your tour is Burano, an island famous for its colorful houses, used to help sailors off shore identify which home belonged to them. But this island isn’t just a pretty photo op, there is also a rich tradition of lacemaking. Your visit will introduce you to some of the women who are continuing the legacy of this ancient craft. Here you’ll also enjoy free time to discover the island for yourself.

Finally, head back to Venice in style, with free-flowing Prosecco, magnificent scenery, and memories to last a lifetime!
