Itinerary

Explore the three tiny and colorful islands of Murano, Torcello and Burano in a half ­day sightseeing excursion by motorboat. Watch a skilled glass blower create works of art in Murano, see evidence of Torcello’s glorious past and admire the picturesque fishermen's houses in Burano.

The first stop of our tour will be the island of Murano, since far back in time famous for the art of glass blowing. Since the 13th century Murano has been the center of Venice’s notorious glassmaking industry with techniques handed down from one generation to another. Here, we will admire a master glass blower during his job.

Our next stop will be Burano, surely the most picturesque island of the Lagoon, thanks to its colorful and cheerful facades. According to a local legend, Burano got its rainbow appearance thanks to the fishermen that lived there, who used to paint their houses in bright and light colors so that they could find their way home while coming back from sea. The island is also known internationally for its rare artisan lace.

Last but not least we will reach the quiet and green island of Torcello and enjoy a peaceful walk. Here, we will visit the 7th century Cathedral of Santa Maria Dell'Assunta to see the spectacular Byzantine mosaics. Not many people know that Torcello is one of the first island of the lagoon to be populated. This magic island is also precious to the American poet Hemingway who visited it many times and here found inspiration to write his book "Across the River and into the Trees".

Please note that this is a shared tour (not private boat and tour).
