This tour took us to Murano and Burano. It is an especially wonderful tour when you don’t have a lot of time in Venice. We had 2.5 days total so it worked perfectly for us. Isabella was an extremely knowledgeable and kind tour guide. She...More
Tour guide had huge knowledge of Murano and Buramo. Translation in english, spanish, german, italian and portuguese. Takes you to both islands and gives you time to explore. Don't miss the Murano glass blowing show and Burano tasteful cake free sample. They offer sewing tour...More
We booked the tour having enjoyed it the last time in Venice. Isabella the guide is very knowledgable speaks at least 4 languages fluently, so just about every can follow.
One hour on Murano, with a demonstation by Master glassmaker Massimo, now seen this twice...More
First off, if you are angling for an all-day, intensive, block-by-block exploration of Murano and Burano, this is not for you. However, this boat tour gives those in the right frame of mind a taste, a sample of the specialness of these two island cousins...More
We chose the 2 islands tour which took us from Venice to Murano then to Burano.
The walk from the meeting point prior to the trip to the boat was quite far, luckily we are young but even on today’s heat it was a lot...More
Excellent location, ideal to getting around the main locations such as St Marco square etc. Very clean rooms and service, and more importantly catered for my partners dietary requirements as she suffers from coeliac disease.
Reception staff fantastic and very helpful.
This hotel is highly...More
The tour organised was quite bad. First of all, we were made to walk quite a distance to the boat which is not easy at all forthe elderly and children. Then we could not understand what the guide was telling in spite of her using...More
I understand we took the newest 2 island tour, Murano and Burano islands together. Absolutely worthwhile and a great improved itenirary. Both islands well worth the look, with plenty of time to wonder and explore the glass of murano and lace and gorgeous coloured houses...More
You can get to Murano and Burano with Venice's public transportation water bus and you can stay on the islands as long as you like. One hour on Murano was too short for us so we decided to use our transport passes to go back...More
Went on the Island tour as it was the only one we could find in Feb. This turned out to be a multi Language tour. Would not have been a problem if the guide seemed to forget English speakers were on board. We missed lots...More
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
