Visit the unique islands of Murano and Burano on this magical half day tour

The best way to explore Venice is either on foot or on a boat. Escape into the pearl of the Venetian Lagoon, away from the bustle of St Mark’s Square, and into the tranquility of both Murano and Burano.


Celebrated as the centre of production of the world famous Murano Glass and often described as a “small Venice”, Murano is the most well known Islands surrounding the stunning Venice. Our first stop will be a traditional glassmaking factory, where you will watch artisans make chandeliers, vases, statues and other beautiful objects. 


Famous for its colourfully painted houses and its picturesque canals, this pearl of the Venetian Lagoon will simply leave you breathless. Walk along scenic canals and take wonderful photographs of the vibrant local architecture and beautiful vistas that makes the island of Burano a rather special place to visit. Then enjoy a visit to a local workshop where lace continues to be made by hand today.
