Enjoy a private half-day excursion by Venetian motorboat to the Venice Lagoon islands of Murano, Burano, and Torcello.

Following a pick-up from your hotel, transfer to the comfortable motorboat, featuring shelter from the sun, a soft sofa, and a 360-degree view. Admire the flora and fauna of the lagoon as you cruise to Murano, where you can admire the romance and beauty of the 9th-century cathedral of St. Donato. Then, take a short stroll to a glass factory to watch expert glass blowers at work.

Next, sail over to the colorful island of Burano, a small gem of the Venice Lagoon with its silent streets and brightly painted houses. Try an authentic bussola biscuit while you are there. Continue to Torcello to explore one of the first populated islands of the Venice Lagoon. Today, due to its distance from Venice, the island is largely used to cultivate artichokes. Marvel at the islands from the comfort of your boat, or on land, before the transfer back to San Marco.

The trip was in a beautifully restored fishing boat - a picture perfect way to spend several hours exploring the other islands. Watching glass blowing on Murano was fascinating, but you do need to be strong to resist the underlying pressure to spend money in the shop afterwards. Burano with its colourful houses was simply stunning and Torcello was so peaceful, it seemed to offer the perfect escape from the pressures of our busy lives. Our guide was charming and unobtrusive - I would definitely recommend this as a great way of exploring the smaller islands.

A beautiful RIVA type boat, all in wood, much better than the photo ;-)) The guide was great, full of anecdotes, attentive and discreet at the same time. Seeing Venice from the lagoon and the Grand Canal is an experience in itself, in addition to the interest of the other cities visited. Murano: for its glassmakers Burano: for its pretty colored houses To do ABSOLUTELY !!

Beautiful day ! We were welcomed at the point established by mr. Manola, an exquisite person, prepared and extremely available, who accompanied us throughout the tour. First stop on the island of Murano: visit to the glass factory. Mr. Fabio, very kind, explained to us step by step the demonstration of a master glassmaker who created three beautiful objects for us. After a pleasant walk on the island we took the boat and went to Burano Manola, our super guide, made us visit the island by telling us and showing us a lot of interesting things After circumnavigating the island of Torcello (we chose not to go down) we returned to Venice enjoying the spectacle of the setting sun Beautiful, well organized, highly recommended experience, which we will definitely do again! a special thanks to Manola who made our trip special !!

Selina was a very special guide. She was informative, patient, very good English and so attentive to us. The boat was great. We loved every minute. This trip helped us to understand and appreciate these islands and their importance to Venice.
