A special day in Murano and Burano islands

A special day in Murano and Burano islands

A very interesting experience learning the glass-blowing technique and walking through nice colorful houses.

Your tour starts from your hotel with your guide, where you will board a private boat and start to navigate the canals of Venice and the lagoon with the islands of Burano and Murano. You will first head to Burano where you will enjoy a pleasant stroll through this fisherman village that has remained unchanged for decades and still shows the beauty of its colorful houses. Your boat driver will then bring you to Murano: the island has been known for centuries for its outstanding glass production. Filled with small shops and showrooms it’s the ideal place for shopping for those who like. You will visit an artist studio where you can see artisans at work and fall in love with their traditional glass-blowing techniques. You will then head back to Venice. 

OPTION: This tour can also include the island of Torcello with a visit to the oldest cathedral of the lagoon where you can admire the mosaics of the 12th century.

You could top your experience with a delicious lunch surrounded by the gardens of the island

In the afternoon, you can devote your attention to some of Venice’s most recent architectural interventions. Carlo Scarpa’s restoration of Olivetti’s shop in the square of Saint Mark and the Querini Stampalia Museum allows you to see his most recent work and visit a palace of the 15th century and its 18th-century interior.
