Description

Pop between 3 of Venice's distinctive islands on this motorboat excursion through the city's iconic lagoon. Explore a glass-blowing workshop on Murano, check out the colourful houses and quaint streets of Burano, and take a look at opulent mosaics and Byzantine architecture on the island of Torcello.

Meet up with your guide near the water's edge and hop on board a speedy motorboat to cruise across the lagoon's waters. As you ride, listen to your guide share stories about the cultural and historic differences between Venice's little island outposts. Reach the shores of Murano and hop off for a scenic walk across the island, ultimately arriving at a glass-blowing workshop where you can watch skilled artisans turn fiery hot orbs of molten glass into colourful creations. Browse the shop for nifty blown glass souvenirs and then hop back in the boat for the short transfer to Burano.

Explore Venice's past as you stroll between the brightly coloured facades of the island's humble homes. Look for local fisherman casting their lines into the water, and find out how Burano has kept up its frozen-in-time appearance.

Wrap up your island-hopping excursion with a final ride to Torcello, where a short walk brings you up close to the 7th-century Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta's stunning Byzantine-era mosaics. Take some time to snap photos of these intricate designs before you climb back in the boat for your return to Venice.

Wir hatten eine deutschsprachige Tour gewählt. Leider sprach die Reiseführerin so schlecht deutsch, dass wir nicht in der Lage waren, Sie zu verstehen!

Der Treffpunkt und die tatsächliche Anlegestelle liegen etwas zu weit auseinander, aber ansonsten war alles ok
