Premium Lagoon Excursion: Murano Glass, Burano & Wine

Spend a perfect day exploring the islands of Murano and Burano on a carefully crafted excursion from Venice, complete with an exclusive wine tasting and private glassmaking demo.
Details

Meet your local guide and small group of just 20 guests maximum in central Venice to board your private boat. As you’re motoring out through the lagoon, your guide will point out places of interest and give you a brief introduction to the history of island settlement in Venice.

Your first stop is Mazzorbo Island where you'll discover the vineyard producing one of Venice’s best-kept secrets: Venissa wine. Learn about how the Dorona grape was saved from extinction and replanted to produce one of the world’s rarest and most unique wines. Of course, a private tasting is included—in the Michelin Star restaurant’s gorgeous tasting space, no less. You'll sip a glass of their award-winning white wine served alongside a selection of homemade baked snacks.

Then you'll explore the the island of Burano, whose brightly colored houses you may recognize from photos. What you might not know is that they’ve been the home of Venice’s legendary lacemakers since the 16th century. After a guided tour around the island’s picture-perfect canals and squares, you’ll have the option to visit a lacemaking workshop with your guide or explore on your own.

Finally, you’ll head to Murano, home of Europe’s most respected glassmakers since the 13th century. See this cherished tradition come to life at an exclusive glassmaking demonstration inside an abandoned medieval church once visited by Casanova and Venetian nobles. You’ll have some free time to explore Murano at your own pace following the demonstration. Head back to Venice with your guide aboard the private boat, or stay a little longer and go back to the city on your own via public transport (your guide will tell you everything you need to know).
