Enjoy a relaxing day on two of the most beautiful islands on the Venetian lagoon: Murano and Burano. On the first island, you'll see the artisanal glass blowing which still goes on to this day.
Murano and Burano Day Trip Itinerary
After meeting at 10 am on a central pier in Venice, we'll climb aboard our boat, which will cruise the Venetian Lagoon on a tour lasting approximately four hours.
Following a brief boat trip, where our multilingual expert will explain the history of the Lagoon, we'll make our first stop on the picturesque island of Murano. Here we'll visit a glass blowing workshop, learning about the process by which they have made Murano's star product for centuries, making lamps, figures and all kind of decorative items for which the island is famous.
Travelling north on our boat trip we'll arrive at the fascinating island of Burano. Here you'll have free time to explore its patchwork of coloured houses, and its great cultural and artistic heritage. You can visit one of the famous museums, such as the lace museum, and the many shops that sell the local 'merletti' as it's known in Burano.
Then we'll meet again at the Burano pier to head back to Venice, arriving at the Riva degli Schiavioni pier at around 2:15 pm.
When making your reservation, please select one of the following meeting points:
- Santa Lucia Pier: (Ponte della Costituzione) next to the KFC restaurant at the Santa Lucia Station, leaving at 10:00 am.
