Tour ID: 7102
Overview

Spend 6 hours discovering the most charming and famous islands of the Venetian lagoon.During this full day excursion you will be amazed by the beautiful surroundings of Venice and learn more about Venetian life and traditions.

The stop in each island will be about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Start your journey in a comfortable motorboat leaving from st. Mark's area and move towards your first stop: Murano.

Get the chance to visit a glass factory and learn how glass masters create their masterpieces during a glass-bowing demonstration. Take your time to explore the island: don't miss the massive basilica of Santi maria e Donato, one of the oldest churches in the Venetian lagoon originally built in the 7th century.

Return to the motorboat and head to your second stop (approx. 1,5 hours), Burano island. Immerse in its colorful houses. According to a local legend, burano got its rainbow appearance thanks to the fishermen that lived there, who used to paint their houses in bright and light colors so that they could find their way home while coming back from sea. The island is also known internationally for its rare artisan lace.

Hop on the motorboat again and navigate to the last stop, Torcello (approx. 1 hour). Torcello was the fist settlement in the Venetian lagoon, its history dates back to the year 452.

Don't miss the cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, founded in 639. Take a selfie with the Attila's throne on the background, an ancient stone chair where chief magistrates were inaugurated or go up the bell tower and take a beautiful picture of the surrounding area.

Go back to the motorboat and head back to departure point.

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We would definitely recommend this tour and the company. Everything was professionally organized and we could not have gotten a better guide.

Amazing crew, very understanding. We are late from getting in, we didn’t know is going to take more time to get there to the meeting place for the tour. They waited for us until we get on board. The tour was great, well managed. Excellent!! I’m highly recommended this company.

We decided to use this tour before our cruise. I decided to use this company because after a friends recommendation and I was not disappointed. Our guide was warm, friendly, smart, patient, and totally fun to have as our guide. She was easy to understand and made sure we saw all the important sites. We learned a lot about these Islands. It was a fantastic tour and I would definitely recommend.

Every spot was beautiful but Murano was excellent.

tour guide is fluent in English and most enthusiastic and spent time taking many family photos of the people in her group which all will cherish forever. It was a more than pleasurable way to learn much about the sites and her passion. Thanks.
