Description

Amazing boat tour to the marvellous Venetian islands: Murano, Burano and Torcello.
Learn about Murano's historic glass-making factories, discover Burano's brightly colourful houses and its centuries-old lace-making tradition and Torcello's ancient Byzantine churches.

Your first stop is Murano, renowned all over the world for its glassblowing art. You’ll enter in a traditional glass factory to watch an expert master creates fascinating artwork. from pretty souvenirs and jewellery to magnificent lamps and chandeliers.

Later, you will go on the picturesque Burano, known for its brightly coloured houses where fishermen live and its local lace-making industry. Taste the delicious “Bussolai”, the famous local pastry. Here you will spend 1 hour, having time for a lunch.

The final stop is Torcello, the island where the earliest settlement of Venice was established and home to several Byzantine churches. Although once it was more populated and powerful than Venice, today on the island live only 20 people. The causes of its decline and depopulation is still shrouded in mystery.

Enjoy the panoramic boat, from where you can take marvellous pictures to Venice and its lagoon.

Tres déçu par cette excursion. trop d'iles a visiter, trop commercial, 40 mns ,trop court pour s' en impregner. Et de plus quand nous sommes arrivés a Murano la nuit tombée. Donc excursion très décevante En prime un discours monocorde trop fort et inaudible. Je ne recommande pas
