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 visit to Murano was very short, perhaps they could give more minutes to tour the island, everything else is ok

We went on the tour today and thought it was fantastic! Everything was very smooth, easy to find and the tour itself was great! Georgia who led the tour was brilliant and her knowledge of the area as well as her ability to speak 4 different languages fluently was incredible! We would definitely recommend and if we return to Venice again in the future we will book again!
