The best way to know and experience Venice is certainly by getting on a private boat and traveling around the Grand Canal that is reasonably defined as “the most beautiful avenue in the world.”

Our crew we lead you through the most beautiful parts of the city and recall of the legends, history; point out the monuments, architectural masterpieces, art and introduce to the lives of those who created or enjoyed it – artists, noblemen, courtesans and other inhabitants of the lagoon.

To get a better insight of the Venetian culture you will be invited to visit Murano island that ever since all around the world is known for its glass production – worth-seeing mastery of blowing and shaping the glass that has a long history as the city itself. The next stop will be the adjacent island of Burano that is visible from afar because of its buildings painted in bright and vivid colors. Here you will have time to wander around, meet some locals, enjoy a cup of coffee and make some memorable pictures.

Finally, through some smaller and secret channel pathways, while observing the most popular and lively neighborhoods, you will reach the pinnacle of the tour - San Marco’s Square.

Venice is surrounded by many different islands, among these are Murano, Burano and Torcello, which are also one of the most visited spots in the entire lagoon. To really get an insight into the life pace that differs in each of them and to enjoy the highest quality time, Top Venice offers you a perfect option: private boat ride and visit to these adjacent islands. To better understand the Venetian culture, you will be invited to visit Murano island that ever since all around the world is known for its glass production – worth-seeing mastery of blowing and shaping the glass, that has a long history as the city itself. Apart from this, almost on every corner of Murano, you will have an opportunity to see the locals working on other traditional crafts. If you fancy getting something for yourself, or bringing back home some souvenirs, this will be the greatest chance to do it on the spot. The next stop will be the island of Burano, visible from afar because of its buildings painted in bright and vivid colours. Here you will have a time to wander around, meet some locals, enjoy a cup of coffee and make some memorable pictures.

We were well looked after by Catty our guide on this tour and one of us ended up blowing a glass bowl, well nearly. Towards the end of the tour we told Catty we would like to spend some of the afternoon at a sensible eating place near our cruise ship and she took us to exactly the right thing. A good 5 hours on this tour.

Amazing tour! I was almost was going to book a shorter tour as we are a relatively impatient and spoiled couple who already visited so many places in the world. But this tour was just perfect! Mainly because of our Super Guide Giovanna a dynamic and enthusiastic young women who has the intelligence to make the right balance between narrating and being quite to let us enjoy the moment. Another factor which was perfect: the weather. It was February but still a sunny day with no clouds. Finally, we liked the flexibility in the organisation: with pick-up / drop-of times and locations and the optional catering against additional costs if needed. There are probably limitations on what can be served, but it is worth asking if you want something special on board. We enjoyed a bottle of Champagne :-

We had a really lovely morning with our excellent guide Roberta. She was extremely knowledgable and clearly very passionate about her home town. Our trip included the Grand Canal and many smaller canals where we saw a little bit of ordinary Venician life. We then visited one of the glass workshops on Murano where we watched a fantastically skilled artist at work and visited the incredible showroom. Then on to Burano which is completely different a very pretty island with colourful houses and lots of restaurants and cafes. It was a beautiful sunny day which made it all the more pleasant.
