During this half-day trip, I’ll accompany you discovering the most beautiful Lagoon's islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello on board of the most strange typologies of bus all over the world: the Vaporetto!

Best friend of every Venetian since 1895 when started its unbeatable service, it became the official trasportation company the 1 January 1905!

(At 9am it is really an early intimate, unforgettable and relaxing lagoon trip :)
On Vaporetto we’ll explore 3 totaly different community of Venetians:

1) The "Muranesi", from centuries they are considered the biggest glass industry all over the world!
2) The "Buranei", very luky community of Fishers and Lacers: they live inside the most beautiful Venice's island!
3) The "Torcellani", the last of them since they are only 9 units. An uncontaminated skyline where is still possible imagine the beginnings of the Venice's dream ;)

Best thing We'll explore Torcello, 17 century ago the first Venice community.
Today the last 9 locals are still living inside a "dark ages city" where everything is like a lot of centuries ago..
