Overview

Enjoy a boat tour that will make you discover the islands of Murano and Burano

Depart from San Marco area and explore the lagoon with an expert local guide and a comfortable boat.

We will navigate along the islands of Lido, Certosa, Vignole and Sant Erasmo to stop in Murano. The Island is famous for the glass manufacturing based here since the XII Century. We will visit a famous glass factory for a blowing performance. There will be time for shopping and then, with a 15 minutes slow walk we will reach the VII Century Cathedral of Saints Maria e Donato. Visit the inside of the Church that preserves original mosaic and is a rare sample of Romanic architecture.

Return to the boat and in 30 minutes we will reach Burano. The fisherman Island is also pretty famous for the particular lace and we will visit a laboratory to learn more. Your guide will bring you through the colourful houses and then free time for shopping or a quick lunch. On the way back the crew will offer you a glass of wine.

My group really enjoyed going to the first island which was the glass blowing. You saw a demo of how it is done and that was extremely interesting. I really enjoyed Burano and my husband enjoying drinking wine on the boat. All said, this tour is well worth the money and it is great to see Venice and the islands from a boat.

A brilliant day away from the city. Venice is beautiful, but very crowded. This tour gives you time to breath and relax. Ada (I think this was her name) was a great guide and enjoyed herself as much as we did.

There is much to see and explore. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to explore this beautiful and historic area. We booked before our holiday and the company were a pleasure to work with. The guide spoke very good English and went out of our way to make sure that everyone was comfortable on the boat. She even joined us with a glass of wine on the return trip. If you like lace, Burano is the place to go to and if you like local glass you will find this on Murano. A very good tour which I highly recommend.

The demonstration at the glass factory was good and just the right length of time so as not to get boring. We had a lovely guide who really wanted us to enjoy our day. We saw a lovely little church and Burano with its many coloured houses was a delight. We did buy some pretty lace on this tour.

It was a way to get away from the busy main island, so we took this marvelous boat tour and really enjoyed seeing the glass factory on Murano and the lace making on Burano. We plan to go back to Burano as it is beautiful. Our guide was good and so were the crew on the boat. Having a nice glass of wine to sip at sea really made our day.
