What you can expect
Cruise across the waters of the Venetian Lagoon to visit 3 famous islands, each with its own unique ambiance and time-honored traditions. Hop off to explore colourful Burano, roam the streets of quaint Torcello, and watch the famous glass-blowing masters of Murano at work.
Step aboard a public boat near illustrious St. Mark's Square or behind the Santa Lucia train station and skim across the water towards the glass-making haven of Murano, where the skills and techniques for blowing colourful Murano glass have been honed for centuries. Step off and follow a guide to a glass-making store and showroom for a brief demonstration, and then spend the rest of your time exploring on your own before jumping back on the boat.
Your next stop is at the neighbouring island of Burano, best known for its enchanting fishermen's houses in striking, bold colours. Start your visit here with a visit to a lace-making store—the island is known for its delicate, handmade designs—before roaming about to snap photos of the canals that criss-cross the island or grabbing a coffee in a quiet cafe.
Your final stop is the island of Torcello, recognised as the very first settlement in the Venetian Lagoon. It’s home to ancient Byzantine churches and pretty pathways, perfect for a stroll and a glimpse into the past before you return to the boat for the final cruise back to Venice.
