Travel to Murano, renowned for its glass-blowing industry, from the Piazzale Roma railway station. The still-thriving tradition, which dates back to the Middle Ages has been passed down through generations and each glass blower has developed their own unique style.

During your one-hour stay on the island, learn to distinguish between the various brands and artisans by watching a glass-blowing demonstration. Continue on to the island of Burano, which is famous for its crochet work and colorful houses.

The leaning bell tower and the main square, Piazza Baldassarre Galuppi, which is named after a significant Venetian composer from the 18th century, provide stunning views of Burano. During your 1.5-hour visit to the island, browse the lace shops. After that, end your trip on Piazza San Marco, where you can stroll around the famous colonnades and see landmarks like the Doge's Palace and Campanile.

The trip was beautiful, the commentator was nice and helpful. They came on time and were very friendly. However was quite short, especially for Burano you needed more time. We took the half-day trip though thats why, so i would recommend the full day trip so you can have some extra time.

This is 100% worth doing! We had the BEST tour guide who spoke 4 languages. The glass blowing was amazing in Murano and the lace at the last stop was beautiful and so much to choose from. Awesome pizza on that island at the far end too We HIGHLY recommend doing this tour!

We booked the lagoon tour with a German-speaking tour guide, unfortunately only Italian, Spanish, English and French were spoken. Since the ship's engines are very loud, there was hardly anything to understand in the back rows. The islands of Murano and Burano are very beautiful. Unfortunately, the time spent on the islands was shorter than described in the booking.
