Enjoy a relaxing day afloat the beautiful Venetian Lagoon. We'll travel by boat to two of the most beautiful islands located here: Murano and Burano. On the first island, you'll have the chance to watch a live demonstration of traditional glassblowing.
Murano and Burano Day Trip
We'll meet at the indicated time at a central pier in Venice and board our tour boat, which will take us around the beautiful Venetian Lagoon.
After a relaxing cruise across the Venetian lagoon, during which the multilingual guides will teach you about its history, we'll make our first stop on the island of Murano, famous for its traditional glass-making industry which dates back to the Middle Ages. There, we'll stop for about 45 minutes and visit a glass factory. We'll watch a live demonstration to learn a bit more about this ancient art.
Now continuing on our boat tour, we'll head to the fascinating island of Burano. Here you'll have approximately an hour and a half of free time to explore its patchwork of colored houses and its great cultural and artistic heritage. This island is known especially for its crochet work and lace, or merletti, as it's called here. You'll be able to visit one of the famous museums, such as the lace museum, and the many shops that sell this beautiful craft.
We'll reconvene at the Burano pier to return to Venice. We'll finish our activity at the Santa Lucia Pier or at the Riva degli Schiavioni Pier, whichever you prefer. However, if you want to finish the tour in Santa Lucia, you'll have to pay a supplement of € 5 (US$ 4.80).
When making your reservation, please select one of the following meeting points:
- Santa Lucia Pier (Ponte della Costituzione) at 10 am
- Riva degli Schiavioni Pier at 10:30 am
Please note that, even if you start the excursion from the Riva degli Schiavioni Pier, you can still finish at the Santa Lucia Pier and vice versa.
More time in Murano and Burano
If you would like, you can stay longer on these islands and return in the evening without any additional cost. In this case please let us know at the start of the tour.
If you'd like to stay in Murano for longer, you'll leave the island at 3:45 pm and visit Burano afterwards, returning to the centre at around 6:45 pm.
If you'd like to stay in Burano for longer, you'll leave the island at 5:30 pm and head directly to Venice, arriving around 6:15 pm.
