Your first stop will be on the island of Murano. Sometimes it is called the "Island of Glass". You will visit one of its famous glass factories and see how glass is made and blown. Then go to Torcello, the oldest inhabited island. Continue on to Burano, admiring the nature and small islands scattered around you. Spend your free time on Burano, a typical fishing island with colorful contrasts and painted chocolate box houses.

Also, note the many pieces of evidence of the famous lace and embroidery industry and try some of Burano's famous homemade cakes. Note that once you're on the ground, it's not a tour. The guide will accompany you to the glass factory in Murano and the lace store in Burano. You will then have time to explore each island on your own.

Very good experience.. You can visit the islands separately at a lower cost but I recommend it, especially if you're in Venice for a very short stay. Furthermore, this tour is complemented with a guide.

My friend and I had arrived late for our boat trip in Venice , but the company that we had booked the trip through, said we could go on the next boat. We visited the 3 islands , at Murano we went to the glass factory , really interesting to watch such a skilled art, especially seeing the beauty and designs created at the end of the demonstration. We then went to Torcello , not a lot there , but we had time for lunch . Our last island Burano was our favorite with the beautiful coloured houses,...

Overall, we enjoyed the visit. However, there is little time left to explore each island. In Murano, most of the time is spent visiting the Fábrica do Vidro (which is fantastic!). Here, we watch the production of some glass pieces in real time. Right before our eyes. Torcello doesn't have much to do with it. If you are looking for colorful spaces, this is the ideal island. Burano stayed in our hearts. The colors make that place become wonderful and a unique setting. We advise you to take sand...

Murano you can see how they work with glass, making different products which they sell in stores around the island. Very small Torcello, a path next to the canal that you enjoy until you reach the church. Burano a beautiful island, with its very colorful houses and more Tourist. You can see their star product that is made with lace. In this tour there is no specific guide; there was a person who spoke on the tour but he was not well understood due to the bad sound of the boat's microphone. IT...

This was a very quick tour (and time could feel very limited for some), but thought that the price was worth it (since you’ll pretty much pay the same if you just buy tickets on your own — but at least figuring out your itinerary would be one less problem). At least I got to see all these beautiful places even for a short time!
